Thank You

Sometime during the last week, Wasatch Weather Weenies reached 3,000,000 all-time page views.

Readership is far greater than I could have imagined when I started in late 2010.  It grew steadily, however, for several years, peaking in the winter and dropping during the summer.  There's been a small decline the past couple of years, but I'm not worried.  I don't get paid anyway!

Despite the fact that I have no income stream from this blog, I have learned that weather is good for business.  Readership really spikes prior to and during winter storms and other weather events.  Sadly, although we finally did get some October snow this season, the NAEFS ensemble is essentially flatlined for the next week.

Production will once again be high in the central Wasatch facet factory.

Thank you for reading.


  1. Thanks for writing. I really enjoy it and I have learned a lot.

  2. I've been a consistent reader since I first moved to Salt Lake from Florida in 2014. It has been fascinating learning about mountain meteorology, prior to your blog I only read about tropical cyclogenesis (as a surfer in FL). Thank you so much for all of the work you put in here!

  3. I never really wondered if you were paid for this blog or not, but now that you mentioned it, I appreciate even more! Thank you! I've lived in CA and UT, and found you from where I currently reside and check your blog daily, in TX. Bought, read and loved your book as well.

    1. Truth be told, I'm a University professor, so this can be viewed as part of my outreach efforts. On the other hand, I derive no income from it and could be doing something else.

  4. That is a lot of page views! I enjoy reading it as well. There are a lot of fascinating weather topics, it is a good way to learn and share observations and ideas. Thanks for all the work you have put into it.

  5. Thanks for the blog, I always enjoy it.
