Wind and rainfall data 29 to 30 December 2013

argylesock says… Here in Britain we like to talk about the weather. But when it goes mad like this, it’s really not funny. I even heard a climate sceptic agree when I said that this is what climate change looks like.

[Edit] Don’t say that we weren’t warned.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
