I was surprised last month to read a letter critical of the Weather Almanac authors [To the Editor, August, 2012]. That is my favorite regular column, and a big reason I chose to subscribe to the Crozet Gazette.
Their weather articles are different than most. Last month’s focus, for example, about the accuracy of car thermometers, is something I have been wondering about a long time, and a topic I’ve never noticed anywhere else.
The charts are excellent as well; the monthly rainfall chart is simple, but illustrative of how much the rainfall can vary from one nearby locality to another.
I’d be interested in reading more about summer humidity variability, from day to day, and among the different locations in our area.
