HAPPY VETERANS DAY!


1911 – Many cities in the Midwestern United States break their record highs and lows on the same day as a strong cold front rolls through.

Great Blue Norther of November 11, 1911

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Blue_Norther_of_November_11,_1911

On Saturday, November 11, 1911, a cold snap, known as the Great Blue Norther or 11/11/11, affected the Central United States. Many cities broke record highs, going into the 70s and 80s early that afternoon. By nightfall, cities were dealing with temperatures in the teens and single-digits on the Fahrenheit scale. This is the only day in many midwest cities' weather bureau jurisdictions where the record highs and lows were broken for the same day. Some cities experienced tornadoes on Saturday and a blizzard on Sunday.[2] A blizzard even occurred within one hour after an F4 tornado hit Rock County, Wisconsin.[3]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valley_Forge

Valley Forge functioned as the third of eight winter encampments for the Continental Army's main body, commanded by General George Washington, during the American Revolutionary War. In September 1777, Congress fled Philadelphia to escape the British capture of the city. After failing to retake Philadelphia, Washington led his 12,000-man army into winter quarters at Valley Forge, located approximately 18 miles (29 km) northwest of Philadelphia.[1][2] They remained there for six months, from December 19, 1777 to June 19, 1778.[3] At Valley Forge, the Continentals struggled to manage a disastrous supply crisis while retraining and reorganizing their units. About 1,700 to 2,000 soldiers died from disease, possibly exacerbated by malnutrition.

Today, Valley Forge National Historical Park protects and preserves over 3,500 acres of the original encampment site.[4]

You should note in these posts, that there are usually numerous dates in history related to major wars, battles, riots, peace settlements and bad stuff in the past because humans couldn't get along or do the right thing. Human beings have had many hundreds of wars and been very corrupt in the past too. Recent times have actually been on the quiet side with regards to wars,  historically. 

You know exactly why I'm bringing this up right now.

Here's some positive stuff today!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002_Eastern_Mediterranean_event

The 2002 Eastern Mediterranean Event was a high-energy upper atmosphereexplosion over the Mediterranean Sea, around 34°N 21°E (between Libya and Crete) on June 6, 2002.[1] This explosion, similar in power to a small atomic bomb, has been related to a small asteroid undetected while approaching Earth. The object disintegrated as a meteor air burst over the sea, and no meteorite fragments were recovered.

The event occurred during the 2001–2002 India–Pakistan standoff, and there were concerns by General Simon Worden of the U.S. Air Force that if the upper atmosphere explosion had occurred closer to Pakistan or India, it could have sparked a nuclear war between the two countries.[2]
