I just love the news media!
One of their big stories right now is that the southern summer will be hotter and wetter this year because of El Niño. So, we should expect heat waves and lot's of escapades to the beach or the lake. Then it's on to the next big story: Argentina under a freezing grip!
LOL! Didn't they just say it was going to be hotter than normal?
Yet it's mid-November (like late May in the US and Europe), and it is warmer in Minnesota right now, literally. People were dressed with scarfs, coats, and mittens, as temperatures are near freezing and well below freezing out west where my home is. Tourists arriving by planes and cruises are in shock... The only good thing is that the sun angle is almost summer-like, so it will warm up in a hurry starting tomorrow.
What happens where you live during an El Niño?? Any disasters? Colder? Hotter? What do they expect in your area?
