SNOW IN GUATEMALA!

snow1

I just learned that Guatemala had its first snow fall since most can remember. There was snow several years ago but not in areas where communities are based. It’s definitely not normal there and homes do not have furnaces or heaters of any type. AS well, the people do not have warm coats and mostly wear sandals all year round. Although they are so excited to be seeing snow for the first time, we are very concerned as they have no way of keeping themselves warm. The snow was not in the area of our villages; however, it did fall in the area of San Marcos – the northern part of Guatemala near Peten where they recently experienced the severe hurricane. Our world’s weather patterns continue to surprize us all and we hope that no one will suffer from the extreme temperature changes they are currently experiencing.
