LYRICS FOR “WEATHER EXTREMES”

Refrain:
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest
Extremes… weather extremes

Verse 1:
Leeny: The Atacama Desert in the country of Chile is so dry…
Steve: How dry is it?
Leeny: …that no rain has fallen in some places for 400 years.
Steve: Also on the same continent of South America is the wettest place on earth.
Leeny: That’s neat.
Steve: Lloro, Columbia. It averages 525 inches of rain each year.
Leeny: Better bring an umbrella!

Chorus (1st half):
Where in the world would you be (the driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest)
To find all of these weather extremes

Verse 2:
Leeny: Where’s the hottest place in the world?
Steve: That would be El Azizia, Libya in the Sahara Desert where a temperature of 136 degrees Fahrenheit was once recorded.
Leeny: You could cool off by heading to Vostok, Antarctica. It was once 129 degrees there… below zero.
Steve: Antarctica is also the driest, windiest, and coldest continent overall.
Leeny: And the iciest.

Chorus (2nd half):
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes… weather extremes

Verse 3:
Steve: Florida is nicknamed The Sunshine State, but it’s not really the sunniest place on earth.
Leeny: Is it California?
Steve: No, it’s Yuma, Arizona where the sun shines nearly 90 percent of the time.
Leeny: Chicago may be called The Windy City, but it isn’t the WINDIEST city.
Steve: Where’s that?
Leeny: The windiest place is atop Mount Washington in New Hampshire where a wind speed of 231 miles per hour was reached.
Steve: Why are you yelling?
Leeny: Sorry.

Chorus (1st half):
Where in the world would you be (the sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest)
To find all of these weather extremes

Verse 4:
Leeny: Steve, where are you?
Steve: I’m here at the Grand Banks off the island of Newfoundland, Canada. It’s the foggiest place on earth with over 200 foggy days per year.
Leeny: Fog is a cloud that’s on the ground.
Steve: You know what else is on the ground? Snow, and a lot of it.
Leeny: The snowiest place is Mount Rainier in Washington State. One year, more than 100 feet of snow fell there.
Steve: I bet they have a lot of snow days!

Chorus (full):
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes… weather extremes

Refrain:
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest (weather extremes)
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest (weather extremes)
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest (weather extremes)
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest (weather extremes)
