Modern-day forecasters would appear to have got it wrong yet again… Prepare yourself for a BBQ Summer they said. By the time Christmas 2009 arrived I realised it wasn’t going to arrive, doh!
Should I disregard the TV, radio and internet for my weather forecast and simply resort to more traditional and ancient methods? Perhaps the best way would be to don a druids robe, go stand in a stone circle at sunrise and wave a twig around in the breeze? It has to be just as good as all the modern technology, doesn’t it?
It made me wonder; were our forefathers any better at it with their Ancient-Wisdom or prehistoric science and technology? And, why are we so preoccupied with the darn weather conditions any way? It can’t have been any less accurate than now… Can it?
