La Nina has brought a particularly cool and wet early summer to my part of the world this year; the west coast of Canada has hardly seen summer yet. Looks like La Nina may be sticking around, unusually, for a third year running.

That could mean more floods in Australia, more drought in the southern US, and more cool temps for me.
