Additional Note: this is the first leap year this column has existed during and today is the first leap day to occur since the advent of this column. I regret to say I have no data for this date so today will be the first date this column has not appeared, even belatedly, since its advent.

I continue to update this featured column so that newer weather events right up through 2011 get added to it as they appear in my sources. Those changes are not limited to just newer ones but in some cases older events become known to me and I add them.
My sources are the NWS San Diego, Hanford, and Reno as well as an occasional contribution from the Redding Record Searchlight as well as the 1998 KCOY-TV Weather Almanac compiled by Jack Church. My only source that continues to be updated is NWS San Diego which maintains their "This Day In History" weather event column. NWS Hanford and Reno have discontinued their equivalents of that column while the Redding newspaper I rarely glance at and the KCOY weather almanac has nothing to offer later than 1997, of course.
I am open to any suggestions for other sources as NorCal is underrepresented in this column as are other areas of California. In particular, if any of you know of any access I might have to historic weather event data that is not overly-data heavy but more brief and focusing on essential details and human societal impacts.
