Can you believe this weather we’re having?

We’re not just making small talk: our winter issue is all about the weather. Whether enveloped in fog, stranded in a blizzard, or steering through a sea squall, the writers featured in this issue are battling forces larger than themselves. That’s what the weather does: puts us in our place.

Plus, AL ROKER talks about the challenges of writing creative nonfiction; Dot Earth blogger ANDREW C. REVKIN reflects on 30 years of covering climate change; how technology is changing memoirists’ work; tiny truths; and more. Illustrated with wind drawings by Mark Nystrom.

Quotes from the issue

“There's an element of mystery to the weather; that's what keeps it interesting.”
- Lee Gutkind

“Some challenges are so grand and momentous that anxiety seems, at best, a waste of time and energy in confronting them. [...] The ultimate environmental story--our evolving and worrisome relationship with Earth's atmosphere and climate.”
- Andrew C. Revkin

"And really what are some secrets, but lies? Benign, perhaps, but lies nevertheless."
- Anita Huslin
