Description

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians love to talk about the weather. And why wouldn't they? The province is known for its great gales, fierce blizzards, destructive glitter storms, blizzards, and hurricanes. It's also known for its fast-changing conditions: if you don't like the weather, they say, wait five minutes and it'll change.
Sheilah Roberts delves into the archives, history books, and newspaper stacks to find stories of Newfoundland weather—the joys of a beautiful summer, the sorrows of a treacherous winter and unpredictable spring, and all the mauzy days in between. Reports from 400 years of Newfoundland and Labrador weather are interspersed with traditional weather lore, snippets of science, and dozens of fascinating photos.
With a foreword by CBC's Newfoundland and Labrador weather expert, Ryan Snodden.
