    The ski industry in Scotland may be in trouble, because there is so much snow in southern England that most Brits can do winter sports in their own neighborhood and don’t need to go all that way to experience snow.

    In reality, the Scots just had their best ski season EVER!

    • They have a nice ski hill in Bracknell west of London. The hill is covered with concrete and teflon. If you fall down, you are almost guaranteed to break your wrist.

    The lack of snow was blamed on global warming. The return of snow was also blamed on global warming. 😉

    If people in the investment industry had asininely put their trust in computer models the way the Met Office does, we would have already experienced a worldwide financial crisis of immense proportions!
