But It's a Dry Cold! explores basic prairie weather patterns, precautions, and statistics. It includes stories of legendary blizzards, record holders, weather and climate facts, wind-chill and drought. It looks at our changing climate and offers a sobering long-term forecast for the year 2040, when we can expect desert-like conditions, floods, and storms even more severe than we experience now.

Also included are a glimpse into the life as a climatologist, weather facts and anecdotes, climaquizzes, and much more. Written in easy-to-understand terms and generously illustrated with colour photographs, maps, and helpful graphs, this book will delight weather buffs of all ages.

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
