Why should I buy the book?
Our lives are not consumed by weather, but like it or not, weather consumes our lives — so treasure it. And for that reason alone, you should know what makes weather tick.
– Bob Riggio, Meteorologist
This book would be useful for anyone moving to the Western South Dakota area, as well as to anyone wanting to gain a basic background in meteorology. The occasional stories and light-hearted humor make the book easy to read.
– Matthew Bunkers, Ph.D.
Bob interprets the signs in the sky in a way that everyone can understand and appreciate. His personal touch helps the reader embrace the science and enjoy the experience of reading this book.
– David Carpenter, NWS Meteorologist In Charge Retired
Bob’s explanations of meteorological events are non-mathematical and presented in an entertaining manner.
