    I would donate my left nut to Peru...however, I don't want to cut into my scrotum to harvest the ball.

    So, Peru will just have to shave some alpacas and make some sweaters.

    Peru Average Temperatures

    -24 Celius is WAY colder than normal for Peru. I'm sure Old Rock's peers will review this and come to his rescue.

    Yep, and there are some places, like Moscow, that are way warmer than normal. Neither, in and of itself, is significant. Now if Peru, and the whole of the South American continent, were to have three solid months of that kind of weather, then it would have some significance.

    And of course the same holds for Moscow and the whole of the Asian continent. Three months of warmth while interesting would be really not a big deal either... Now would it old fraud?

    Oregon this year has been cold. Moscow has been both extremes this year, they had a really crazy snowfall this winter.

    Korea was really cold this year. Coldest its been since japan had been running the place.

    Weather is changeable. Who would have thunk it?

    Peru is a little differnet though no? I mean with the El Nino being right off shore, it is a leading indicator of our weather to a degree. If you can trust bugs, we are going to have a frost in less than six weeks here in Michigan. Seems pretty early, if correct.

    I didn't know about this.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Always nice to have still one more thing on my plate that I cannot do a damned thing about.
