… Now I have proof.
Last weekend there was a major storm in Quito (luckily we missed most of it because we were still driving back from Banos) and it hailed. Like a lot.
Pictures taken from a moving car, so they’re not terribly clear …. but that white stuff?? That’s all ice. And see how it’s not really melting?
COLD, people. It is cold on the equator.
