Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0762700807, Paperback)This compendium of climatological lore, scientific observation, and oddments is sure to spice up those inescapable weather-related conversations. One sidebar, for example, lists hurricanes so devastating that their names were forever retired, such as Inez, Camille, and Hugo. Another gives guidelines for measuring raindrops. Still another discusses time-honored but ultimately flawed folk methods of measuring the temperature, including the famous cricket-chirps-per-minute formula. Authors Ronald L. Wagner and Bill Adler Jr. also provide almanaclike information on weather patterns and information on ordering weather-related gear such as rain gauges and barometers.
