We are continuing the series, “Questions I am asked”. I am often asked, “What is the weather like in Argentina?”. In fact, I am asked this question almost weekly. While this does not really focus in on the spiritual position of Argentines, it is a question people frequently ask. The answer however, is not a concise one.
Argentina is vast. There is a subtropical climate in the northeast of the country. There is no dry season there, which makes the area the most humid in the country. Over in the west, in Mendoza, the climate is very dry. While it is hot and humid in the north, the south is quite different.
There are glaciers and penguins in the south of Argentina! Ushuaia, the southern most city in Argentina, does not get as cold as some might think, but still has a sub-polar climate.
Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is close to the same distance to the equator as Atlanta, GA (there is only about a 60 mile difference). There are four seasons in the capital, albeit spring and autumn can be volatile. The city almost never gets snow because it is on the River Plate. The summers are very humid and are usually in the 80’s F.
So the weather in Argentina is truly dependent on where you are in the country. Although the climate is different in various locales, the need is the same. Every city, town, village, and house needs the Gospel of Jesus!
