A compilation of riddles, jokes, cartoons and dramatic photographs, the book goes straight to the heart of the weather, entertaining and educating, pursuing answers to questions like “How does radar find rain,” and “What is a tornado?” Striking photographs of tornados and other weather phenomena include a handful taken in the Texoma area. The book’s charming and original cartoons will appeal to anyone who has a funny bone. They are thanks to accomplished illustrator Elizabeth Cox, a graduate of Austin College.
