The Vasthead went on line in 1997, and it became a registered domain on November 5, 1999. This is the oldest surviving page from the early days of The Vasthead.
The idea was to get a big picture look at the weather by seeing all the nearby weather locations on a single page.
After a long absence, the same balloon you see below was brought back in 2014. The weather page has gone through many -- too many -- name changes. When we brought back the balloon image, we put it back in the name. This page is now simply called The Houston Balloon.
This Houston area weather display is a service of THE VASTHEAD.
