Victory in the south

I hear that General Grant has made progress against the south, I hope that the weather conditions could be stable enough for the capture of Richmond and the potential surrender of General Lee's forces.

Fort Pillow

I am pleased to know that their shall be snow near Fort Pillow on my planned attack date, I shall take this into consideration and shall hold off my attack for the coming days.

Weather Inquiry

We are slated to encounter the armies of Lee in Northern Northern Virginia. T'was the understanding that the climate would agree with our efforts. Mistaken as I am, the Army of the Potomac is more than capable. Will there be a chill in the air to aid our campaign?

OBLIGED FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE

Having had satisfactory weather for our little sojourn in Atlanta, I believe we will be able to make the best of it in December despite the rain. I am determined to secure a fine Christmas-day present for President Lincoln.

I am, etc.,
W. T. Sherman
Major-General

P.S. To Gen. Lee: Thank you for the update on troop movements. Lt. Gen. Grant requests I enclose his regards, and inform you that he looks forward to enjoying the pleasure of your company in Virginia.

Thank you for the forecast

I was planning on launching my invasion of the north during January, however now that I know that it could snow I shall delay my attack until March. Thank you for your help, when I burn the Yankee capital to the ground I will be sure to give you credit.

My daughters 1st birthday

My daughter turns 1 on November 8, 2020. It's so hard planning something and not knowing the weather. Her party will most likely be November 7th. We were wanting to do something at the park but there are only outdoor shelters. Something around 2p. To 4PM any ideas on weather or alternate ideas due to cold weather?
