Think of the Windowsill










Think of the wizened nectarine on the windowsill
like shepherdesses on a mantlepiece.

Think of the windowsill without the nectarine.

Climate change report / Tables & Conclusion





In 1768 the winds were predominantly from N, E, NE
whereas 
in 2018 the winds were almost all S,W, SW.




The Days are similar. It could be that P.F. would have called 
some of the Gardemeles Fair days Fine. If so then the 2
Septembers are even closer except for the recording of gales...
Twice as many in 2018.


Conclusion: not much change in the overall
 September weather one quarter of a millennium later. 
The N&E winds of 1768 would have been colder.
the Westerlies of 2018 brought more gales.
