A couple of days short of May and I awoke to find the lawn hidden under snow and hail! While I accept (obviously!) that some form of climate change is occurring, as an astronomer I'm aware that similarly strange things are happening elsewhere in the Solar System. Still: there's no money to be made from the putative inhabitants of Mars, Europa or Titan!
Meanwhile - with the temperature outside a cool five degrees at midday and worse expected - what will become of the newly-arrived hirundines, swifts and warblers?
