Blowing Cold and Hot: The Big Ones
Our weather is always going to the extreme. In this section, we take a closer look at a few of the big storms that have made history. This will not only underscore the power of the weather but also bring together the principles we've looked at in previous chapters. We'll see how nature makes it happen. Of course devastating storms are just too numerous to list, and all cyclopaths have their favorites. So this is just a partial list of some of my greatest hits. With some of these storms, I've even had some personal involvement.
