Brazil nuts – castanha do Para

Brazil nuts are being frozen up and down the country this week.

I tell you, the climate skeptics are just plain WRONG!

Brazil is experiencing the worst cold in more than 40 years, and the most generalised cold ever.

A mass of chilled Antarctic air is stationed over the southern half of the country, and extending into the Amazon areas in the west. Eighty cities had snow yesterday, some of them hadn’t seen snow in 40 years.

Here in Rio de Janeiro we have been chilled since yesterday and expect to remain so until Saturday.

This weeks CTWW is just not going to happen!

Let’s look at this week’s CTWW.

This week, rather than use your stove/oven to prepare meals, use counter-top appliances (crock-pot, toaster oven, electric skillet, etc.) or eat raw foods. No cheating … we’re not suggesting that you buy prepared foods or head for the nearest restaurant. The challenge is to prepare meals at home using the least amount of energy. Can you do it for one day? How about seven?

Sorry, but, no! Not even for one day under the present conditions… cold food, you’ve got to be kidding.

I’m heating lunch now!

LOL, gotcha!

I haven’t got one of those. I make real coffee with one of these…

  1. I am freezing here too. It’s not cold enough to snow, but dipping down into the 40s at night I went from being so hot I couldn’t sleep last week to needing an extra blanket this week.

  2. I no longer need my fan on so temperatures are within reason. The global weather is predictably in excess again.
