Stampin' in the Rain

Who says it never rains in Southern California?

Last night, we had to cancel our stamp club meeting because it was coming down in buckets. According to the National Weather Service, Los Angeles is supposed to get up to 10 inches of "liquid sunshine" before it stops sometime today.

Speaking of rain, stamps and weather...a few years back, Tom Fortunato put together a very creative on-line exhibit called A Philatelic Look at the Weather for the Rochester Philatelic Association. In it are a lot of interesting stamps, cancellations, covers and other material related to meteorology.

Tom is currently the chairman of the American Philatelic Society's Chapter Activities Committee and media relations chairman for the Washington 2006 international stamp exhibition.
