|Title: Weather Diary 11 June 1979|
Concept: Energy and weather.
Detail: On this date in 1979 Huron, SD came to the end
of the coldest, and costliest, heating season on record. It may have been
a warm day in South Dakota, but the people were breaking into a cold
sweat when they added up their fuel bills from the previous winter. The
heating season (which is computed by tabulating "heating degree days"
from July to the following June) racked up a impressive 9,194 heating
degree days, beating out even the viciously cold winter of 1916-1917.
Cold weather is expensive!
