interesting stuff Richard. thanks for posting
listening last week on radio Leeds to paul hudson who told listeners we have a 90% chance of a poor summer this time
he tracked all winters back to 1940 and found all the really cold winters are usually followed by a poor summer(90% of cases)
heres hoping we get one in the 10% bracket this time
we deserve a decent one after the last 2 washouts
cheers Graham
