My new website is now LIVE!

Hello everybody,

I am very happy to announce three big developments in my weather-related life:

1. I was just awarded Third Place for Best Blog in the 2014 Valley Advocate Reader's Poll! I am very honored, and you can visit the link here -

2. I just became an official Severe Weather Spotter for the National Weather Service out of Taunton, MA.

3. I just launched a new website as a central home for my work around Western Mass Weather! I also launched a crowd-funding campaign to ask for financial support so that I can continue this work, as I am at a crossroads, and not sure that I can continue on with it. Any support you can offer is hugely appreciated.

Please visit the links below for more info,  and thanks for visiting this blog!

Hello Western Massachusetts weather friends,

This was a blog I set up when I thought of getting off of Facebook, but as it turns out, at the start of 2013 I decided to keep my Facebook page:

Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to delete this blog, so until I figure out how to delete it, I wanted to put this post up for those interested in Western Mass weather to at least direct you to the right page on Facebook.

If you are on Twitter, you can reach me there at

Thank you, Dave Hayes

Hello everybody! I realize this isn't as convenient as Facebook, and some of you might not dig it. However, Facebook unfortunately forces you to have a personal page active to have specialty pages. And, as I do sometimes, I need a break from Facebook. I hope you will follow this blog, and allow it to send you emails of my posts.

I really appreciate that you've chosen to follow me with regard to weather updates. It means a lot. And I don't like to interrupt the flow, but I am going to get off Facebook for a while.

However, if a big winter storm looks likely, I will get back on, as I did for Hurricane Sandy.

I wish you all well, and hope you will follow me here when I am off of Facebook.

Thank you, Dave Hayes (The Weather Nut)
