The 2018 PEI weather trivia calendar

UPEI’s Climate Research Lab has launched the 2018 edition of its PEI weather trivia calendar. “Some Weather We’re Having!” is available for sale at Bookmark in the Confederation Court Mall, Murphy’s Pharmacies in the Charlottetown area, or at the UPEI Climate Research Lab on campus.

Co-authored by Don Jardine and Dr. Adam Fenech, the weather trivia calendar is filled with 365 stories about real local weather events from across the Island over the past 250 years and their impact on the everyday lives of Islanders.

“There are so many stories in there,” said Jardine, climate station manager. “There are some sad ones and some funny ones. This year we have a focus on extreme rainfall events and on storms in the Greenwich area.”

“Because of the nature of the Island and the way that we live, we’re very affected by weather. Sometimes it keeps us at home or away from school, and sometimes it drags us to the beaches because it’s so nice,” said Dr. Fenech, director of the lab. “But the weather really controls a lot of what we do and who we are. We say in our calendar ‘Our weather is our story.’ It’s the stories around the weather that are so intriguing.”

The 2018 edition of the calendar features: all new 365 stories of PEI weather trivia for every day of the year; twelve full-colour PEI weather photographs; stories of Prince Edward Island as told by our weather; information about Island extreme rainfall events and a history of storm events in the Greenwich area; and much more.
