Just some weather statistics from Spain in January in 2009:

- 26 days of rain in January in Santiago
- A new Spanish record was set outside Santander the last week in January in the "Larges wave" category: 26,13 meters.

Last year we had a very dry winter, this year... not so dry. The forecast for the next week is also rain.

I am looking forward for spring :|

Hi, Ivar,

I think the whole Iberian peninsula is completelyl waterlogged. I am spending this year in Lisbon and it has done nothing but rain since the second half of November. I was in Bilbao in December (around the 15th) and one of the days I was there was the first day it had not rained in 55 days! Or so they told me. Yet I still see that the reservoirs appear low (around central and Northern Portugal that is), so the water deficit must still be pretty substantial.

I join you in wishing for a dryer spring! Laurie

Many, various, and continuing.
Still, the never-happy farmers ´round here are smiling. The over-wintering cebada crop is greening up ahead of schedule, which means it will beat out the weeds this year. Earlier, stronger crops, one hopes.

there´s always a silver lining someplace.
