 The river’s end bookstore was packed with people last Thursday for the release of author Jim Farfaglia’s ““Voices in the Storm: Stories from The Blizzard of ’66,” and “In Pursuit of Clouds: The Journey of Oswego’s Weatherman Bob Sykes.” Farfaglia interviewed more than 200 people who lived, attended school or worked in Central New York in 1966. “Bob Sykes had an amazing life as a weatherman beyond the ’66 storm, including serving his country during WWII as a meteorologist stationed in Greenland and his tenure teaching at SUNY Oswego,” Farfaglia said. “His instruction influenced many of today’s meteorologists such as Dave Eichorn, Al Roker and the Weather Channel’s Tom Niziol.” Several of Sykes’ family members also attended the event.
