After writing 700 Notions I see a pattern emerge w.r.t short, 'right' and long ones

Then last week I came across this click-baity posting by Tim Denning, advocating max 200-word posts to reach 'virality', while reflecting on my blogwriting pace. Checking the length of my Notions, I looked at the ones that feel just right. Those are around the 200 mark. I suppose they are bite si

Great News. The Commission for Observation, infrastructure and information system (INFCOM) of the World Meteorological Organization has approved the plan for a *climate reference network*.

Its implementation plan is now part of the WMO Infrastructure Commission workplan.

Normally climatology piggy bags on the data from meteorological stations. This climate reference network will be designed to be as temporally stable as possible to better see changes in the climate. variable-variability.blogspot.
