From black blizzards to snowspouts, white-washers to mauzy days, Canada's curious weather awaits you inside the covers of the 2013 edition of star climatologist David Phillips's award-winning Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar.
It should come as no surprise that The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar is Canada's best-selling calendar. After all, Canadians curse, praise, meditate and carry on about the weather as much or more than any other nationality on the planet. In this twenty-first edition of the calendar, Canada's own weather guru has collected some of the most spinetingling, spell-binding, and strange stories, history, trivia, records, and quiz questions for the weather freak in all of us. The calendar is always a favourite at home, the office, and in the classroom-kids love it too! Who wouldn't want to know what a vapour explosion effect is, after all?
