52 paddles were documented on the blog this year. The weather stats break down like this:
29% of our paddles were on sunny days;
35% were on cloudy days;
17% were on rainy/stormy days;
2% were on foggy days;
2% were on snowy days;
and 15% were cancelled due to bad weather.
Compared to 2006, the amount of cloudy day paddles were nearly identical, but sunny paddle days were down nearly 20%. We also went out on more rainy or stormy days, and cancelled more paddles due to bad weather. Global warming wasn't making it any warmer, however climatologists' predictions that we will would be facing fiercer storms appear to be holding up, at least based on this small and subjective sample size.
For comparison, the 2006 stats broke down like this:
47% of our paddles were on sunny days;
34% were on cloudy days;
6% were on rainy days;
3% were on foggy days;
and 10% were cancelled due to bad weather.
And the 2005 stats were:
43% of our paddles were on sunny days;
50% were on cloudy days;
and 7% were on foggy days.
