Format: Paperback
Dr. Mel is a much-loved Connecticut weatherman whose career in the state goes back a long way. As a gardener and landscape designer, I take much interest in the topics of weather and climate--so The Connecticut Climate Book caught my eye. Dr. Mel combines his good humor and easy style with some very deep historical and scientific data. The result is both entertaining and readable--quite an achievement for a topic that could be as dry as Connecticut in July (most years, lately). Connecticut, one of the country's smallest states, sits in a surprisingly volatile location--making it the target of hurricanes, tornadoes, nor'easters, as well as beautiful fall weather and sweltering "beach days." The exhaustive historical review sometimes calls on records 400 years old. One can't escape the knowledge of just how extreme Connecticut weather can be. The book also provided some insight into the historical development of the state, based on climatalogical records.

Dr. Mel offers thoughtful words on local warming trends, avoiding a political stance on the matter--just offering the facts. If you're interested in weather, climate, Connecticut history, and the future of this ever-changing state in an easy-to-understand format, this book will surprise and please you.

The book arrived quickly and was in better shape than was advertised. I enjoy reading about weather, live in CT. and knew Dr. Mel so this book was a no-brainer. I recommend both the seller and the book.
