Enough is enough already. Enough with the snow. Enough with the cold. When is spring going to arrive, and stick around! Given the weather we've had the past few months I'm beginning to wonder: what will our summer be like?
Did you know that there was a year when summer never came? The year was 1816.
What happened to cause the year without summer? It is believed that the anomaly was caused by a combination of a historic low in solar activity with a volcanic winter event, the latter caused by a succession of major volcanic eruptions capped off by the Mount Tambora eruption of 1815, the largest known eruption in over 1,300 years.
