Welcome! This site is dedicated to following my weather interest, along with featuring some seasonal photos from around Etters. The actual weather data, from this station on Weather Underground, is found by clicking on the blue weather icon below.
Etters —a mostly rural area in York County, is located across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital. As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern. Henry Etter became the first post master. It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name. (Information obtained from Goldsboro post office documents.)

Rain would be good, but keeps it cooler. Still looking warmer for next week, maybe even a bit above normal. Wasn't sure that was still possible...
