The problem in  selecting  2012   as a analog   for the Summer forecast ...or for example mentioning 1988    or   1983 is that these years  all   have a strong personal memory for both farmers and traders as being particularly bad  Summers.     So if you are going  with the 2012  1988  1983   etc  it  had better not be a typical summer  that features ordinary  intervals  of   hot  and dry   then   wet and cool   Those  3 summers were exceptional .... extreme events .   So if end up with ordinary weather patterns of June July and August then those who are forecasting the extreme events are going  end up f looking pretty bad  --  just like Captain Kirk and the $7.00 corn

Captain Kirk, that is pretty funny Dave. We often times calls afc's Dr simon another name....Dr crazy, but that guy has a way of predicting LT pretty darn good
