    The snow is so thick, you can barely see the dog.

    Reuters
    July 19, 2011 — Araucania Region, Chile (Reuters) Heavy snow storms bury southern Chile in six feet of snow leaving communities isolated with blocked roads and downed power lines.

    “The problem is the roads, that's all. We are cut-off from everything, but they're going to have to open it,“ said one resident of the Araucania region on Monday (July 18).

    It's way the hell down south. The national park and shitloads of lakes. Pretty varied elevations.
    My place is outside of BioBio wine valley.

    Chile hit by 'white earthquake' of heavy snow
    A "white earthquake" of heavy snow has blanketed parts of Chile leading the government to declare a "disaster area" in eight municipalities where around 16,000 people were left isolated.
    Temperatures plunged to as low as -23 C (-9.4F) in some rural areas as severe snowfall wreaked havoc, leaving people without food supplies, mobile phone signals or radio communications.

    Miguel Mellado, governor of the province of Cautin, said that in four days from Sunday to Wednesday the area had seen "four months worth of snowfall."

    But the deniers are saying there's no Global Warming?!?! If so, where's all that extra moisture coming from? If we're to believe in the Global Cooling Hoax, wouldn't there be LESS SNOW?!?!
