1816: The Year Without Summer

Summer 1816 is remembered as the Year Without a Summer. Did you know that this abnormal weather was part of the global impact of a volcanic eruption on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa?
Two centuries ago, much of the world was left in the cold during what became known as the Year Without a Summer.

Here's hoping your summer has been filled with warm weather and sunshine, unlike the summer Canadians had 200 years ago. 1816 is remembered as the year without a summer.
Miserable. Gloomy. Freezing cold. In Canada, winter can be all these things. But in 1816, that’s how the summer unfolded — and it would take nearly seventy years before we would understand why.
