cool, thanks! So the answer to the OPs question:

for loc in np.rollaxis(data, 2):
     for year in np.rollaxis(data, 0): # rollaxis not required here, but
                                       # for symmetry's sake...


I think I still like the idea of an iterator (or maybe making rollaxis a 
method?), but this works pretty well.
