Thursday, February 5, 2009 is National Weatherperson Day, commemorating the birth of John Jeffries in 1744. Jeffries, one of America’s first weather observers, began taking daily weather observations in Boston in 1774 and he took the first (hot air) balloon observation in 1784. This is a day to recognize the men and women who collectively provide Americans with the best weather, water, and climate forecasts and warning services of any nation.  In honor of Jeffries, take a peek at DeltaWeatherCam if you haven’t done so recently
