The Rain in Panama Falls Mainly in the Lakes
And when it does, it leads to the first closing of the Panama Canal in its 96 year history. Let me think, cold and snow in the UK and Europe; torrential rains in Australia and now in Central America. Is this the canary in the mine of global cooling? This same guy at this very useful blogsite also looks at the level of the Great Salt Lake and raises the same interesting question. How long does it take for weather to become climate?
By the way, the Canal runs more north and south than east and west.
