Mars triggered the March 18, 2007 Solar Eclipse on February 26th. When outer planets reach the conjunction, square, and opposition of eclipse degrees there is usually a weather reaction over the places where the Sun and Moon were angular.

The Weather Alternative forecast for this period called for inclement weather for the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia in Canada.

The Pacific Northwest has pretty much remained unscathed by any inclement weather during this period. British Columbia, however, has been hit by a pacific frontal system. Here is an example of one of a number of weather warnings posted by Weather - Environment Canada.

Southeast winds of 60 to 90 km/h will ease this evening.
This is a warning that potentially damaging winds are expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

A pacific frontal system approaching the north coast is spreading strong southeast winds of 60 to 90 km/h over the Queen Charlottes and coastal sections of north and central coast this morning. The winds are expected to abate this evening as the front moves inland.

The long-range forecast also called for a moisture-laden air mass to push up over the Southeast into the Ohio Valley prompting storms along the way.

Accuweather reported on the 26th that storms producing damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes would hit the Southeast, especially Florida.

This next Accuweather map for the 26th shows the Ohio Valley being hit by a low pressure system that brought cold winds, heavy snow, rain, and a mix of wintry precipitation to the area.

What Enthusiasm Can Do For You

One of the greatest human needs of our time is a weapon to fight mediocrity, one that will teach us how to make use of zest and vitality and the creative forces buried deep within us. What we so desperately need is the capacity for exercising enthusiasm.

Having carefully observed people over many years, I am convinced that the individuals who achieve the most in life are invariably activated by enthusiasm. The men who do the most with their lives are those who approach human existence, its opportunities and its problems—even its rough moments—with a confident attitude and an enthusiastic point of view. Therefore, it seems timely to stress the vital power of enthusiasm and to suggest ways to develop and maintain this powerful and precious motivating force.

Enthusiasm can truly make a difference—the difference in how your life will turn out.
