"Harold Gilliam, California's premiere environmental journalist, never fails to bring the power and beauty of nature home to the most citified readers. In this eloquent little book he transforms the local climate into an entire ecological education."--Theodore Roszak, author of The Voice of the Earth "Ask Hal Gilliam, 'How's the weather out there?' and, as always, you get an eloquent, exciting and updated answer--this time, to journalism's most fascinating topic."--William German, Editor Emeritus, San Francisco Chronicle "In this enjoyable volume Harold Gilliam, a pre-eminent California nature writer, enlightens us about the weather in the San Francisco Bay region. He makes sometimes-abstruse concepts easily understandable and brings the vagaries and variations of Bay Area weather into sharp focus. The book should be of interest to the many Bay Area residents for whom weather is a matter of daily concern."--Edgar Wayburn, M.D., Honorary President of the Sierra Club
