1st March - Today's News: Australia's Hottest Summer on Record

It's the first day of Spring, meteorologically speaking - and grey as ever here in Evesham!  My second coldest February, though one more notable for its lack of hard frosts.  The Daily Mail are astounded to discover that 4 of the last 5 winters have been colder than average and their headline writer somehow thinks this has some bearing on global warming.....   Perhaps someone should point out to him that a) there are more than 3 months in the year and b) the British Isles do not cover the entire planet!  Details in the story itself seem correct though.  Oddly, they never seem to run headlines about warmer than average temperatures.  Wonder why? 

Headlines, like for example: records confirm this summer as our hottest.  In Australia, that is.  With speculation it could possibly even be the hottest on record across the S Hemisphere as a whole.
