NWS comes here to get new weather terms, obviously.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Forecast Discussion hyperlink for the definition of Blob refers back here.

This time of year the models are notoriously bad at predictions. Check again in August.

Archaeologists find site of mass child sacrifice in Peru
Associated Press

LIMA, Peru — Archaeologists in northern Peru say they have found evidence of what could be the world’s largest case of child sacrifice.

The pre-Columbian burial site, known as Las Llamas, contains the skeletons of 140 children who were ages 5 to 14 when they were ritually sacrificed about 550 years ago, experts who led the excavation said Friday.

The site, near the modern-day city of Trujillo, also contained the remains of 200 young llamas apparently sacrificed on the same day.

The burial site was apparently built by the ancient Chimu empire. It is thought the children were sacrificed as floods caused by the El Niño weather pattern ravaged the Peruvian coastline.

“They were possibly offering the gods the most important thing they had as a society, and the most important thing is children because they represent the future,” said Gabriel Prieto, an archaeology professor at Peru’s National University of Trujillo, who has led the excavation, along with John Verano of Tulane University.

“Llamas were also very important because these people had no other beasts of burden. They were a fundamental part of the economy,” Prieto said, adding that the children were buried facing the sea, while the llamas faced the Andes Mountains to the east.

Excavation work at the burial site started in 2011, but news of the findings was first published Thursday by National Geographic, which helped finance the investigation.

Prieto said that besides the bones, researchers also found footprints that have survived rain and erosion. The small footprints indicate the children were marched to their deaths from Chan Chan, an ancient city a mile away from Las Llamas, he said.

Verano said the children’s skeletons contained lesions on their breastbones, which were probably made by a ceremonial knife. Dislocated rib cages suggest that whoever was performing the sacrifices may have been trying to extract the children’s hearts.


What I want to know is, did the rains stop?

Its interesting how climate forecasts are statistically bad this time of year with Spring (N Hemi) weather highly variable but April to May is the prime window of opportunity to summit Everest.
