Children of the Yangtze River by Otto S. Svend, Joan Tate

New Englanders talk as much about their weather as about all other subjects combined. Anyone whos scampered for shelter during a summer shower or shoveled a path through snow in May knows that bending to the weathers whims is a way of life in New England. But what do you actually know about New Englands weather or climate? Combining a scholarly appreciation of weather systems and events with an ability to transmit their passion to a general audience, Gregory A. Zielinski and Barry D. Keim have written a one-of-a-kind guide to New England weather and climate. Not only are weather patterns in New England more changeable and more extreme than almost anywhere in the country, New England is the ultimate destination of nearly all storm tracks nationwide. Recently, newsworthy items such as global warming, El Nino, and La Nina have significantly impacted our local weather, in both the short and long term. Luckily, the science of meteorology and climatology and their tools of observation and analysis have made great strides in the past few years. The authors offer an in-depth explanation of the latest theoretical insights into New Englands weather along with a flurry of stories and lore about the vagaries of our clime. The book is divided into the seasons as we actually experience them--ski season, mud season, beach and lake season, and foliage season. It includes photos and illustrations: some all too familiar, many hard to believe. Zielinski and Keim succeed in providing an illuminating and entertaining analysis and commentary while whole-heartedly embracing our regions atmospheric peculiarities. This book wont do anything about New Englands weather or climate but it will help you understand each of them.
