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. We have had a pretty long run of no cancellations during winter!! (We did have a cancellation in March 2017 because of a water main pipe rupture in our parking lot area that required the entire library to be closed.)
A cancellation 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 mid-December 2017, we have been experiencing some incredibly warm, comfortable weather throughout October and November so far. Winter is just now starting to make its appearance. Good enough that you probably do not even think of those nasty, blowing, snowing nights that you know we will get this winter. I just hope they don’t occur on the 2nd Tuesday evening of the month, the day of our program.
Cross your fingers that good weather karma will be with us on our program nights for December 2017 and January, February and March of 2018.
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!
