With the IEE right around the corner now I though I would share this gallery and it is very interesting the points that the guy makes.
I woke up this morning to find 6″ of snow on the ground and I do have to say that I have never seen snow so deep and after the “look it’s snowing lets go out and play” feelings had worn off I started looking around and found out that today’s weather could be here to stay. For a few days at least
The Arctic Oscilation (AO) is a pattern of changes in sea level pressure in the Arctic and over the Azores. During positive fluctuations there is low pressure over the Arctic and high pressure over the Azores causing droughts in the Med, warmer than average temperatures over much of europe along with rain in northern parts of the UK and Scandanavia. Durring negative fluctuations however there is high pressure over the Arctic and Low pressure over the Azores bringning cold arctic air to northern europe, drier conditions to the UK and cold arctic air reaches southerly latitudes in the US & Canada.
Take a look at the graph below. This graph shows a 3 month moving average for the AO and you can see at the end of 2009 there is a large negative fluctuation.
This is then corroborated by what we are see. Heavy snow falls have blighted the UK for the best part of a month now. In new york, Washington and Phillidelphia places have been inundated with more than 2 foot of snow in places.
The thing is though no one knows how long it is going to last. From the sites that I have read to gather this information they recon that they snow could be here for anywhere between 1 week to 2 but looking at the BBC weather forcast simulation it shows that the country could start warming up again by the weekend.
In the mean time we’ll all just have fun in the snow.
I was thinking part way 2008 when a song came on the radio (can’t remember the song though) and I thought to my self when did I first listen to the song, when did I fall in love with it. And with that idea, at the end of last year I made a playlist of all the songs that meant something to me in 2008.
Now the only rules of the playlist is that you have to start listening to it that year. It doesn’t have to have come out that year but you have to have started listening it to in that year. And as a result it can’t then be in any playlists in years to come. The final rule is that the playlist can be no more than 30 tracks long
So we have my 2008 playlist

So what does this prove. I have a shit taste in music but as someone once said to me “quality of music is how the listener judges it” and that is why I think these tracks are awesome and I hope you like them as well.
