Book Review: "Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book"

Dr. Mel Goldstein was a much-loved Connecticut weather reporter and meteorologist whose humorous touch and insightful forecasting endeared him to state audiences. He passed away in January 2012, a year after I read this book. If he's watching us from his beloved clouds, he's probably less surprised than most at the megastorms that have visited in the past few years. That's because one thing "Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book" (Wesleyan Press, 2009) makes abundantly clear is that Connecticut gets a lot of wild weather, a lot more than a moniker such as “the land of steady habits” would forecast.
