Brazil Sees Extremely Rare Snow, And This Is All Your Fault

All you had to do was turn your air conditioning up to 80, but, no, you wanted to be selfish

From the article

Temperatures dropped across Brazil on Thursday – with rare snowfall overnight in some places – as a polar air mass advanced toward the center-south of the global agricultural powerhouse, threatening coffee, sugarcane and orange crops with frost.

Cars, streets and highways were blanketed in ice while people took the opportunity to take pictures and play in the snow, building snowmen.

“I am 62 years old and had never seen the snow, you know? To see nature’s beauty is something indescribable,” said truck driver Iodor Goncalves Marques in Cambara do Sul, a municipality of Rio Grande do Sul state, speaking to TV Globo network.

More than 40 cities in the state of Rio Grande do Sul had icy conditions and at least 33 municipalities had snow, reported the meteorology company Somar Meteorologia.

Unusually cold weather in Brazil has already sent international prices for coffee and sugar higher and Friday was forecast to be the coldest day of the year, according to Marco Antonio dos Santos, a partner at weather consultancy firm Rural Clima.

The temperatures could be the lowest in 65 years. So, you know what’s coming next, right?

Sigh.

    Brazil sees a rare snowfall. They key word is rare and means it has snowed before and probably will snow again sometime in the future.

    Well, I did not drive my fossil-fueled F-150 today, but I did yesterday, so I’ll accept some of the credit for giving kids who’ve never seen snow before a chance!
