      missed it, but unexpected heavy wet snow in early hours of Easter monday, evidence of it on cars slushy bits

  2. Lovely sunset, the sunspots were even just visible
  3. What was notable about the last solar minimum was how strong Greenland blocking was. I don't think I have seen blocking in that region that strong and persistent for a long time, they were few +ve NAO months in that period. Every month in 2010 was a -ve NAO month. Scandinavian blocks were very limited. It could explain why we had a colder winter and months in that period than occurred with the mid 1990s solar minimum. The previous solar minimum had a lot of Scandinavian blocking around 1995 to 1997. The cold was less impressive though apart from that last week in December 1995. January and December 2010 were colder than any month in the 1990s and 10th March-9th April 2013 CET was colder than January 1997.
  4. Summer 1996 was pretty respectable. The summers weren't that bad, IMO around that minimum compared to the summers around the last minimum.
  5. How phenomenal has Steve Smith been since the start of 2014? 38 Tests, 4339 runs av. 65 17 100s 16 50s
  6. You can see how much the change of the location where the sun sets around the equinox from one day to next by the telegraph pole.
  7. Well, yes. I know one or two people who think asperitas is just undulatus.
  8. Fate wasn't kind to Roy Orbison.
  9. Surely asperitas has been around for millennia, so why is it only being recognised now?
