It was 25 years ago today that Tim Berners-Lee wrote a paper proposing an “information management” system that became the conceptual and architectural structure for the Web. He eventually released the code for his system—for free—to the world on Christmas Day in 1990. It became a milestone in easing the way for ordinary people to access documents and interact over a network of computer networks called the internet. We have come a long long way from this. What do you think the next 25 years holds in store for the web?

80 years ago today: The first dust storm of the great dust bowl era of the 1930's began today. The dust storm, which had spread from Montana to the Ohio Valley prevailed from Georgia to Maine on the 13th  resulting in a black rain over New York and a brown snow in Vermont. Parts of South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa reported zero visibility. On the 13th, dust reduced the visibility to half a mile in Tennessee. Attached is from the Monthly Weather Review on the event.

On this date in 1987, Heavy snow spread across much of New England. Totals in Massachusetts ranged up to 14 inches in Plymouth County. The seven inch total at the Logan Airport in Boston was their highest of record for so early in the season, and the 9.7 inch total at Providence RI was a record for November. Roads were clogged with traffic and made impassable as snowplow operators were caught unprepared for the early season snowstorm.

Doing some research on a storm that moved up the East Coast in 1968 (45 years ago tomorrow). Going through the Newspapers articles on the event and you could write a book on this one event. Snowed in Atlanta and Athens. Georgia Bulldogs practiced in the snow, then watched films of the 51-0 shutout of the Gators from the previous weekend. More than a foot of snow fell in the Carolina Mountains with 14 inches at Blowing Rock, NC, 15 inches at Ceasars Head, S.C. and 23 inches in Giles County, VA. All types of chaos from Florida to Maine including a story of people leaving there cars on the Bronx-Queens Bridge in New York, 2 feet of water in Lower Manhattan and 2 feet of snow trapping skiers in Vermont. http://goo.gl/gmN0sa

Looking at the data on this potential snowfall from the Carolina's into New England that the European is advertising, the middle of next week.: I'm not buying it. There is no doubt in my mind its going to be cold over the eastern part of the county, it just doesn't look like there is any moisture to work with. 

Another view of the Super Typhoon Haiyan. Now imagine if this beast were lurking off of Houston, New Orleans, Pensacola, Tampa, Miami or Charleston. The mass evacuation ahead of it, the winds, the surge, the destruction left in its wake. Its a visual I don't think a lot of us can't comprehend. http://goo.gl/nIvQha

The Beast. http://goo.gl/VKc9IS

These cameras in Manilla are going to be worth watching over the next few days as Super Typhoon Haiyan moves in. WINDS HAVE INCREASED TO 190 MPH!!!! http://goo.gl/5amtNJ
