Will this mean the end to monopolies as we get held to ransom over the weather? Open weather data


Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

No, sadly... By my reading it says: "Come in and I'll explain why we neoliberal ideologues have to sell everything." !!
True, Muz1. Ben Franklin is supposed to have quipped, "Everyone talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it."

You are right in a sense, but we may well get more accurate weather forecasts. The frustration we had over the inaccurate weather forecasts during haymaking wer unbelievable and may very well have cost us on our final bale count

Hmmmm, I'm surprised to hear that this data isn't freely available!
