I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.
The driest place on Earth is the Dry Valleys Region of Antarctica. Even though Antarctica is virtually all ice and snow, the Dry Valleys Region has no ice or snow and hasn’t seen any rain for 2 million years. The second driest place is the Atacama Desert in Chile, which hasn’t seen rain in 400 years.
