The Times: no news in 2009

So they’ve posted a report alleging Sir John Moore’s defeat by the weather, 200 years ago. It’s snowing a bit in Spain at the moment, but no signs of it turning into a repeat of 1829-30, when the Ebro froze, 1835-6, when eggs froze in their shells in Palencia, 1836-7, when it snowed on the Andalusian coast, 1844-5, when heavy snowfall in Barcelona at the beginning of December was followed two weeks later by devastating flooding, etc etc. (Thanks to MM)
