Last winter we had "the mother of all El NiÃ±o's" and it was predicted that we'd be in for a soaking wet winter. Didn't happen. It was one of the driest on record. It was opined by many that this was the "new normal" because of AGW. We were told that we'd be in a permanent state of drought because of climate change.
This winter we had a La NiÃ±a and it was predicted to be another dry year.
Well, we've surpassed our record year (82/83 (an El NiÃ±o year)) in rain fall.
It's raining today.
People like myself who just look at rainfall totals by year (and compare it to El NiÃ±os) know that there's no corrolation between rainfall totals and El NiÃ±o.
I also predicted a high rainfall total for this year just based on historical patterns.
I turned out to be correct. I guess I'm just lucky, over and over again. Another lucky guess.
It's only smellz.
