It's February 5th 2015, also know as National Weatherperson's Day!!! According to wikipedia
"It recognizes individuals in the fields of meteorology, weather forecasting and broadcast meteorology, as well as volunteer storm spotters and observers. It is observed on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the United States' first weather observers who took daily measurements starting in 1774"
Read more about John Jeffries in the graphic below which I found on Twitter, posted by Thomas Iwinski @DopplerTom
And below is a funny meme (eCard) that I found for the day!
Then of course there's the food to celebrate! Look at these delicious treats found on Twitter!
