I found a copy of this book in the college library while visiting a friend in New York. She had been through Hurricane Charley in Punta Gorda, Florida. In this book there's a description of what a big hurricane is like. She told me it was straight on. The wind in Charley was 140 miles an hour, she said. 'Meteorology Demystified' starts out with descriptions of the atmosphere, and it makes some mention of climate trends and changes. But by far the most interesting chapters are the ones on storms. I was especially fascinated by the descriptions of tornadoes and blizzards. I have never seen anything like these, coming from a place where the weather is pretty tame, if a bit cold and wet at times.
