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.
It could be that we need to cancel our program but our library could still be open on these dicey nights. It is not uncommon that many of our speakers come from a distance and bad weather could make it impossible for them to drive to our library to make the presentation while our library would still remain open.
As I write this in late November 2015, we have just been hammered with an 11 inch heavy wet storm that took place on November 21-22, 2015. What a way to start our winter!! However, it looks like the weather is going to turn warm the balance of this week for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. We might see temperatures back in the 50’s with rain on Thanksgiving.
Cross your fingers that good weather karma will be with us on our program nights for December 2015 and January, February and March of 2016.
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!
