In response to Year without a Summer, written by Ken on May 28, 1998 at 08:08:32
You may not believe this but just two days ago I was thinking about The Year Without a Summer! I was trying to figure out where I could track down the information I am looking for regarding my novel which is set in Ontario in 1816. I had heard about the volcanic eruption disrupting the weather world-wide and wondering how that would have affected the sugaring off of the maple trees. I think it must have extended the season but by how much? You wouldn't happen to know anything about maple syrup would you, Snarkhunter? Your mention of the brillant sunsets and the years 1810-20 being cold were helpful details to me.
I am planning on asking an aquaintance who is a meteorologist but he probably doesnn't know about maple syrup. If anyone knows anything more about The Year W/o a Summer, how it affected maple sugaring and would like to share this information I would be most grateful.
