I just wanted to remind readers of this blog, especially those of you that often attend our monthly Genealogy Program at the Schaumburg Township District Library (STDL), that I would post a notice here if a Genealogy Program on the 2nd Tuesday evening of the month would have to be cancelled due to bad, wintry weather.
A few cancellations have happened in the past and I believe posting the cancellation of that program in this blog proved helpful and beneficial to those who thought of coming out on a bad wintry night. I believe that our most recent cancellation of our genealogy program was in February 2010 just a few months after I started this blog.
It does not happen often but this blog can easily get the word out that a genealogy program is being cancelled due to inclement weather.
As I write this in early December 2014, it already seems like we have had a taste of some very cold weather during the month of November 2014. November 2014 was the 7th coldest November in the weather history for the Chicago area averaging about 7 degrees per day below the normal expected temperature.
Our December 9, 2014 program went off without a weather hiccup quite nicely. The weather was as I like to use the term “uneventful”. No snow, no ice, no sleet, no rain! So 25 participants were able to focus on genealogy and not how they were going to get here or get back home facing a weather challenge.
One bad weather month down and three more to go as we are about to enter 2015. Cross your fingers that good weather karma will be with us on our program nights for January, February and March of 2015.
So keep checking back here especially on the 2nd Tuesday evening of the month if you may be planning on attending our genealogy program during the months of December, January, February and March. If the weather is dicey and we cancel the program, you will hear it here!
