Welcome to the August edition of the weather thread. Boy, the months just roll on by, don't they?
The full moon this month is on the 18th and called the Full Sturgeon Moon. The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.
I did a quick scan of the July thread for a little trivia. There were 19 US states represented with posts plus from across the pond in Hessen Denmark. States listed here - not in any certain order. I hope I got my abbreviations correct....
