Similarly, the desert is not about the sun. Most of the year here, it’s about snow and cloud. The desert is not a result of weather. It’s a result of mountains and air pressure. That’s cool. Here’s what it looks like today.

And that’s the other neat thing: the earth is not as cold as the comic books tell us. Doubt it? Ask the neighbours. They know.
