It's a nuisance when it rains on a picnic. It's tragedy when a tornado destroys a neighbourhood. But our planet would be a very different place if it didn't have extremes of weather. Weather has shaped the world we live in, and humans have learned to live in almost every climate that can be found on Earth.
Remember the difference between weather and climate: 'Climate is what you expect, but weather is what you get.'
If you ever go to the Atacama Desert, take plenty of water with you. In some places, it hasn't rained for 400 years.
Many plants need wind to help them reproduce.
If you live near water, build your house on stilts to keep it high and dry.
You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Extreme Weather!
