Why get the Basic Spotters Field Guide, Did you know that the United States is the most severe weather prone country in the world. Each year, people in this country cope with an average of 10,000 thunderstorms, 5,000 floods, 1,200 tornadoes, and two landfalling hurricanes. Approximately 90% of all presidentially declared disasters are weather-related, causing around 500 deaths each year and nearly $14 billion in damage.

SKYWARN® is a National Weather Service (NWS) program developed in the 1960s that consists of trained weather spotters who provide reports of severe and hazardous weather to help meteorologists make life-saving warning decisions. Spotters are concerned citizens, amateur radio operators, truck drivers, mariners, airplane pilots, emergency management personnel, and public safety officials who volunteer their time and energy to report on hazardous weather impacting their community.

I haven’t read this book yet, actually, with the thousands of files I am trying to sort and eventually upload I find little time to actually read any of them.  I just try to sort, check for copyrights, and ensure the content is not overtly inaccurate.  I have deleted some files I received that contained white supremacist recruitment materials.  Some may dislike the history of this country and may want our war memorials destroyed.  This is our history, and the Civil War was not a simple single issue war.  Most of those who fought for Southern Independence did so for the same reasons their grandfathers fought England.  They did not do it for slavery.
