A Little Milder [Apr. 5th, 2013|09:08 am]
Tony Grist
It was very cold yesterday and the last dibs and dabs of fallen snow were hanging on in shady places. They've all gone now (I just went out to check) and the air feels warmer.

I was reading an article a couple of days back which said this unseasonable weather is due to the jet stream- which carries warm air northwards from the tropics- wobbling off course. If it were to shut down completely (which is something that could happen) Britain and France would enjoy a climate similar to northern Canada's.

When I was a kid they were saying we were on the brink of a new ice age. Then global warming took over. Now the ice age is coming back in fashion.

Either way it's apocalypse...

Ah! The 'World in Winter' theory again.

Haven't heard that one for a while. Wasn't there a novel of that title some time in the fifties?

I'd better dig out me thermals. :o)

Might need them in St Andrews this weekend anyway!

I decided quite a while back that climate scientists know nothing.

Or Leningrad...

I fear that this year's sub-arctic weather has been a portent of things to come...

I'll miss the weather I grew up with.

On the other hand I rather like snow.
