Fun Fact March 23, 2022.

Today in World Meteorological Day, remembering the day that the World Meteorological Origination was formed in 1950.  This day also educates the public on the importance of meteorology.  Barometric pressure. Jet stream. Wind chill factor. Cloud cover. Chance of precipitation.  When you listen to a weather report, you’ve probably heard these terms.  A meteorologist is a scientist that studies the atmosphere.  Meteorology has been studied for thousands of years, however, it was only since the 18th century that significant progress has been made in meteorology. Thanks to computers and satellites in the 20th century, the accuracy of weather predictions has greatly improved. The first daily weather forecast appeared in the London Times in 1861.  Today we celebrate our very own Meteorologist, Kemp Miller.  If you happen to see Kemp, thank him for predicting the weather and keeping us safe.  You should also check out Kemp’s Weatherwise podcast at The River 95-3 dot com.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/

SVEC restore power

svec

An email from Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative (SVEC) reports that only about 19 members lost power in yesterday’s storm.

If you are still without power SVEC assures members that it will be restored today as crews deal with the weather as best and safely as they can.

Often the type of snow can make all the differences when it comes to power loss.

The heavy type of wet snow lays heavy on lines and tree limbs which can often cause an outage.

A lighter snow like last night causes less damage but the ice will cause concern especially when it comes to repair.

Anyone without power should always report it at SVEC.coop.

You can also connect easily to SVEC with the MySVEC app now available.
