Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - The Weather On the Day You Were Born

It's Saturday Night - 
time for more Genealogy Fun! 



Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:


1)  Have you ever wondered what the weather was like on the day you were born?  Was it a bright, sunny day, or a wet and windy dreary day?


2)  Go to the website http://weather.sumofus.org/ and follow the directions.  Put in your birthdate and birthplace and find out what the weather was on that day. [Note that it only goes back to 1901.]

3)  For extra credit :), find out the weather when your parents and your spouse(s) were born.

4)  Tell us in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or on social media.  Please leave a link on this post so we can see what you found.

*  My father was born on 15 October 1911 in Fitchburg, Massachusetts.  The weather was:



*  My mother was born on 30 July 1919 in San Diego, California.  The weather was:



*  My wife was born on 3 December 1942 in San Francisco, California.  The weather was:



These were all glorious days in my family history!  Now I can weave this information into their biographies.

This weather site is a lot of fun. I wish it went back a bit further into the 1800s. No one in my close family was born on a nice weather day! https://emptybranchesonthefamilytree.com/2018/04/saturday-night-genealogy-fun-the-weather-on-the-day-you-were-born/
