The Boy with the U. S. Weather Men

by Francis Rolt-Wheeler

We know a great deal more about the forces of the Weather than the ancients did, yet we know but little still.

But the tornado sweeps its funnel of death over our cities in spite of all we do, the cloudburst falls where it will, and rivers rush to flood with the melting of the snows upon the distant mountains.
