La Nina Chatter

If I had a dollar for everyone that asked me about La Nina in the past week, no I wouldn’t be rich, but I would probably have enough to take myself out for a decent meal.  In other words, I’ve been asked a couple of dozen times, not a lot, but still enough that what is happening in the Pacific Ocean is being discussed in agricultural circles.  The odds continue to favor La Nina conditions to reform in the equatorial Pacific in the coming months.  A La Nina is when the equatorial waters of the Pacific Ocean are cooler than average.  I doubt the La Nina this winter will be a strong as last year, but it is often the years with weak or cold neutral conditions when our winters get a bit more interesting.
