A Good Omen?

Thanks to Alan Edwards for alerting me to the fact that the dry start to this year has not been matched since 1961.

If Hampshire’s cricketers are going to emulate that this year, they’d better get going quickly when the season re-starts in another month (re-starts?!! another month?!!)

It didn’t quite last in 1961; overall, the driest UK summers have been (in order) 1995, 1976, 1983, 1984 and 1913 (The Guardian today). Southern England has so far had just 6.1% of its normal summer rainfall.
