So if you've ever read The Giver you know that in their world they have total climate control.  They don't in Uglies.  I remember in Pretties (around when Tally and Shay have their fight) it rains.  And in Specails they talk about snow at some point.  So my questions are... do they have the technology to control the weather in Uglies? If so, why don't they use it?  If not, do they ever have big storms? Hurricanes? Blizzards?  Flooding?  What do the Pretties DO in the rain?  Do they have snow removal for the crumblies?  And while we're on the subject, what about trees?  Do they have trees that lose their leaves?  Do people rake leaves?  Wouldn't leaves kinda make New Pretty Town less sleek and technological looking?  Lots of questions... do me a favor and answer a few!

Dude... you read into things... a lot.

I would say that they probably dont have total climate control, but a little at the least. The trees most likely don't loose their leaves. Pretties probably stay in doors when it rains XD I would most definitely say that they have something that would protect them from the storms or elimenate the storms... I just don't know how. C:

It's an interesting book. A really fascinating dystopia. It's worth reading.

And as for weather control - that's pretty much impossible. I doubt they could have complete control over something so unpredictable.

Eh, I don't think they have climate control, but I do know that drones do the raking...

It'll tell you in the books. Read it and look hard, you will see it!

Well, I feel like there has to be SOMETHING so they can make sure their cities aren't randomly taken out by a tornado or hurricane or something.
