Ohio can be a land of weather extremes. There are droughts followed by flood, arctic cold and soaring heat in one year, a Christmas warmed to 70 degrees and a Christmas white with thirty inches of snow. Ice jams on the Sandusky River and tornadoes across its southern counties, wind storms in Cleveland and floods in the Ohio River Valley inspire Ohioans to “remember when.” Thomas and Jeanne Schmidlin, native Ohioans, have brought together data from government records, scientific studies, memoirs, diaries, and newspapers in the first comprehensive book on Ohio weather. They highlight 200 weather events from 1790 to the present―extremes of rain, snow, storms, and temperature. Anecdotal, often first person, accounts are enhanced by statistics, photographs, and maps. They describe the place of weather in popular history and folklore and how forces of nature compelled the construction of extensive flood control and weather warning systems in Ohio. Thunder in the Heartland will be of interest to climatologist, cultural historians, and all who live the weather of the Oho Country.

Anecdotal, often first person, accounts are enhanced by statistics, photographs, and maps. They describe the place of weather in popular history and folklore and how forces of nature compelled the construction of extensive flood control and weather warning systems in Ohio. Thunder in the Heartland will be of interest to climatologists, cultural historians, and all who live the weather of the Ohio Country.

Review:

"There is a large literary vacuum in Ohio's climatological history, and the Schmidlins are the perfect team to fill the void."--Dic Goddard, Chief Meteorologist, WJW-TV

"Thunder in the Heartland provides a treasure of case studies and data that will be of great interest not only to meteorologists and climatologist but to every student of Ohio weather and climate. The Schmidlins have done a masterful job of assembling the key weather events that have colored Ohio's history and shaped the state as we know it today. Through an intriguing set of case studies, they illustrate the dynamic nature of Ohio weather."--Henry Moon, University of Toledo

"Mark Twain said of New England: 'The weather is always doing something there.' And so it is in Ohio where Thomas and Jeanne Schmidlin have documented weather extremes in a compelling account of snow, ice, cold, heat, flood, drought, tornadoes, and hail. This is a weather watcher's delight."--George W. Knepper, University of Akron --Midwest Book Review
