I have had many different farmers comment on the potential impact of the Iceland volcano eruption on the weather patterns this year. Was there more of an impact than just cancelled flights in and out of Europe or has the extreme variable weather in 2010 been just a coincidence? Farmers love weather and drawing correlations to events in history. Just think back to the apparent farmer derived correlation between fog and rain this past spring.
Is this just another farm weather tall tale or is this actually based on some substance of meteorological fact. I asked David Phillips from Environment Canada that very question. I also asked David, what is normal weather these days.
