You'll be blown away by what you learn in this book.Wait a minute - that's what you do in New England if you don't like the weather. And the old saw is apt - nor'easters, hurricanes, blizzards, floods, tornados, we definitely have some wild weather swings. Great place to be a meteorologist, right? Right, says Josh Judge, who is a weatherman (in fact, voted as "Favorite Weatherman" in NH Magazine's Best of NH contest for the last five years) for WMUR-TV. In his recently released book, "Extreme New England Weather" [SciArt Media, $29.95], Judge provides a comprehensive and entertaining look at the hows and whys of the last century of New England weather. Fifteen other well-known meteorologists - WMUR's Mike Haddad and Kevin Skarupa, WCVB's Dick Albert, WHDH's Mish Michaels and WBZ's Bruce Schwoegler among them - recount their most memorable storm experiences. Plus, there's a never-before-published interview with the late Don Kent, Judge's top 10 weather myths and information about how to keep yourself and your family safe during bad weather. A good book to have around on dark and stormy nights.
