  1. Greatly looking forward to the best mid-west book fair!

  2. Paul Gross says:


    I am not sure if I can get to the book fair this year due to circumstances beyond my control, but I certainly would love to attend. One question: I collect very old weather / meteorology history…old books, magazine/newspaper articles, etc. Topics may include very historic weather events (particularly here in Michigan), the science itself, the government’s establishment of the Weather Bureau, etc. (in fact, just today I framed an 1874 Harper’s Weekly article about the U.S. Army Signal Corps…the first organized network of weather observers here in the U.S.). Do any of you have anything of this nature that you will be bringing?

    Again, I hope to see you there…
