  1. looking at the charts and how things are unfolding..i would be tempted to pop down the bookies and put money on a sub zero Feb CET if i was back home.
  2. no of these charts jive with news articles at the time about the alarming reduction in sea ice in the arctic that appeared from the 1920s through the early 1950s
  3. yep esp when you consider ice levels are always bench marked against the high tide of Arctic sea ice which was 1979..i wonder why?

  14. yep its a strange one..everything is in place you would think to deliver some very cold synoptics..solar minimum, SSW early doors and faltering El Nino but its a real struggle to get there.

    Advice on buying a new car

    I had a VW Passat and the CAM belt went at 60k and totaled the engine VW wanted to charge me 2k for a new engine..i got it done at a local garage for 350 with non vw parts and flogged it on..best car i ever had was my first car VW GOLF mark 1 driver ..1300cc four speed gear box..no power steering etc went on forever and handled like a dream..i have owned Audis and BMWs but that is still my most fav car.
  19. GFS Parallel is on the money again in my view..ECM and GFS op have the Canadian lobe too far east..esp later on.
