Did you know that America’s first “weatherman” was Benjamin Franklin?

Ok, you probably are aware that Ben Franklin made some discoveries regarding electricity, via his famous key-on-a-kite experiment, but did you know he actually made a number of weather discoveries…some of which would not be full understood OR accepted, for another century or two? Things related to storm motion (over America), wind motion and direction, barometric pressure, etcetera. No wonder he was a hit with the ladies! He was always experimenting, and he knew stuff no one else could know about a very cool subject!
Here is a great article on his many discoveries and ideas, that I found to be an excellent read.
