Bill Fairweather Retires

I went into the station on Monday for a meeting … and found that the station had closed because of the snow storm. I don’t ever remember when the station would shut itself down because of the weather … except for the big one in 1978.

Anyway, talking to one of the engineers I found out that Bill Fairweather had retired three weeks ago. I thought you all would like to know about this as another of our older engineers leave the ship.
