Oct. 30 is National Weatherization Day

You may think that Oct. 30 is Halloween Eve, or All Hallows' Eve Eve, but you would be wrong.

It is officially National Weatherization Day, so proclaimed by folks who do weatherization projects. They picked the last day of National Energy Awareness Month (bet you didn't know it had a whole month), which apparently got its official okey-dokey from the U.S. Department of Energy.

But to make the observance really official in Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee signed a proclamation earlier this month declaring the 30th Weatherization Day. Spin Control admits we missed this rather momentous signing earlier this month, but the Department of Commerce was kind enough to send out a press release about weatherization programs designed to cut down on asthma in low income children, and include a copy of the official proclamation, so we would know this isn't some made-up observance.
