 January 1, 2006 Windstorm   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The location of the highest wind velocities during the January 1, 2006 event has the flavor of a southeast sucker, yet many interior areas received wind gusts into the 40 mph, and sometimes 50 mph, range, which is uncharacteristic of a southeast sucker, but more characteristic of a moderate classic event.
With an average peak gust of 45.2 mph, the January 1, 2006 windstorm was the strongest event since January 16, 2000, which had an average peak gust of 52.5 mph at the eleven key stations used in this comparative data section.
In the ASOS era, the windstorm that the January 1, 2006 event most closely approximates is the January 1, 1997 gale that followed a major flood-and-mudslide-producing Pineapple express that wreaked havoc over the New Year's holiday, and the February 3 - 4, 2006 windstorm.

 First Sunrise of the New Millennium   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
International Date Line where the Sun can rise on January 1, 2000 is on the headland between the Dibble Glacier (134° 37' E) and Victor Bay.
In January, the angle that the Sun makes with the horizon as it rises and sets becomes shallower as you go farther south, so the effect of refraction on sunrise and sunset times becomes more pronounced.
This is the reason that the Sun does not appear to set 30' outside the Antarctic Circle on January 1, 2000 (26' on January 1, 2001).
