National Weatherperson's Day

Since I'm both a meteorologist and a trained spotter, I figured I'd share this, which I've shamelessly stolen and re-posted from the National Weather Service Binghamton, NY's Facebook Feed:

"It's National Weatherperson's Day! This day recognizes individuals in the fields of meteorology, weather forecasting and broadcast meteorology, as well as volunteer storm spotters and observers. It is observed on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the United States' first weather observers who took daily measurements from 1774 to 1816. (source: Wikipedia)"
