...1870...
President Ulysses Grant signed a joint resolution with Congress authorizing the 
Secretary of War to form a National Weather Service. This agency was placed 
under the Secretary of War because it was thought that military discipline would 
ensure that observations would be timely and accurate. The new agency was placed 
under General Albert Meyer. General Meyer gave the National Weather Service its 
first moniker...the Division Of Telegrams And Reports for the Benefit of Commerce.

...1987...
A storm off the Atlantic coast produced high winds and heavy snow in the
northeastern U.S., with blizzard conditions in eastern Massachusetts. Wind
gusted to 80 mph and 23.4 inches of snow produced drifts eight feet high at
Cape Cod MA. It was the worst blizzard in thirty years for the Cape Cod
area. Winds in some of the mountains and ridges of the Appalachian Region
gusted to 100 mph. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1994...
The Ice Storm of 1994 was devastating and paralyzing. Tennessee, Northern 
Mississippi, and a seven county area in northwest Alabama received up to 6 
inches of ice. The weight of the ice caused numerous trees to fall, blocking 
roads and making travel impossible. 9 fatalities and $3 billion in damage are 
attributed to the storm.
...2001...
Eastern Kentucky was in the midst of a warm and record setting period. The 
Jackson Weather Office established record high temperatures of 72 degrees on

and 70 degrees for the 8th and 9th respectively.  (NWS Jackson)
...2011...
For the past 30 years, winters in Kentucky were relatively mild with very little snow
for most winters. But not for 2010 or 2011. According to Tom Priddy, UK Ag Meteorologist,
every time he sneezed It snowed in the Bluegrass State. ;>)
