Welcome To The Wire: The WXnation Blog is now WXnation Wire. Why? The reasons are three-fold: 1) Most of the posts here consist of current weather and space news links I find interesting (and hope you do too), so weather/space news “wire” seems to be more fitting than “blog.” 2) “WX” was an abbreviation for “weather” used in telegraphy, in which communication and information was transmitted through telegraph wires. Aside from wireless devices, the communication and information in this blog is accessed through some type of much more efficient wire. 3) It’s short … and, just like blog, it’s four letters, but now there’s alliteration!
