*The momentary state of the atmosphere we call weather; its long-term state is climate. Since weather is variable, climate embraces a multitude of unlike events, and no simple method has ever been found to express all of them with complete accuracy. The climatologist knows before hand, then, that in the eyes of some he will commit sins of commission or omission; he must find his satisfaction in bringing any description to a partial state of order.
