Re: Jen, weather?

High soil moisture levels heading into spring.


Weak el nino most likely.


Still in a period of anomalously low sunspots with cycle minimum due approx 2020.*


I guess if I was hoping and praying for a weather market, the more likely would be too wet**. 


I'd take a drought over that any day.


*weirdly so. Could be that Providence is giving us a mulligan on climate change although he's probably used to being disappointed by his favorite creatures.


**I suppose a '93 scale event would move the market- at least eventually. But 'tis true that there's tons of fieldwork capacity and a ton of tile has been laid since then. Also soil tilth, infiltration capacity is generally better.
