1,000,000 Served!

Sometime yesterday morning, the Wasatch Weather Weenies hit 1,000,000 lifetime page views.

Our first post was on October 1st, 2010.  Initially, we were an invite only blog, but response was overwhelming, so I decided to open it to the public, trollers and all :-).  I'm so glad I did as it's been great fun writing for everyone.  Page views by month show that we pick up more readers each winter.  Where everyone goes in the summer I have no idea!

Our first winter was amazing.  Huge amounts of snow, lots of storms, and lots of skiing.  I logged 66 days of skiing that season, including 3 days on Mt. Rainier with my son around July 1st.  Ah, those were the days.

Since then, both snowfall and my back have been on the downswing, but we've found plenty to talk about anyway.  In case you are interested in looking back, here are the 10 most viewed posts.  A few of these have been boosted by people following Google searches for specific phrases or people.  Blogging about "Fabio" (#4) has greatly boosted my readership.
