Other Snow Jam ’82 Information


First, many of you have asked how you can support this site to be sure it doesn’t disappear. Thanks for asking!

Though it’s not exorbitant, there is a cost to host the site and keep things (somewhat) up to date, including adding your cool Snow Jam ’82 stories. 😉

One option is to sign up for discounted website hosting through my SiteGround affiliate links. Having designed, built and hosted many sites over the years, I can tell you that SiteGround is a really great low-cost way to host your website. It’s easy to get started, and they have a very intuitive interface with lots of ‘one-click’ installations including WordPress. This really is helpful because you can build any site you can imagine in WordPress. For inexpensive website hosting, it doesn’t get any better. Affordable Website Hosting (SiteGround)

The other option would be to share my Atlanta-based design agency with any business or organization that might benefit from our creative work. We provide branding, brand strategy, logo design, web design, copywriting, content creation and more. Visit Brand Cultivation to learn more.

Thank you for your interest in supporting this fun, quirky little website!

A Nod to Atlanta’s Kirk Mellish

Atlanta Meteorologist Kirk Mellish Retires from WSB Radio

In 1987, Kirk Mellish became Atlanta’s—and the nation’s—first radio-only, full-time meteorologist on WSB Radio on AM 750. Over the years, Kirk has (of course) mentioned the ‘apocalypse’ of the 1982 snow storm known affectionately as Snow Jam ’82, and a number of times, this website SnowJam82.com as a resource.

As of August 2021, Kirk has officially retired from broadcasting, though he is still working for the station as a consultant through the end the year. Read the official announcement of Kirk Mellish’s retirement from WSB Radio.

For many Atlantans, with our insane traffic and extra-long commute times, Kirk has been a regular part of their daily routine. The ‘Mellish Meter’ and the single ‘ding’ of the bell that corresponded to a ‘10’ on the Mellish Meter will be missed! After 34 years of covering Atlanta’s weather, it’s a well-deserved retirement. Thanks, Kirk, for all the forecasts and your always-insightful weather blog!

Welcoming Christina Edwards

Replacing Kirk as the WSB Radio meteorologist is Atlanta native, Christina Edwards. Here’s hoping she’ll (help) keep the memory of Snow Jam ’82 alive!
