As we all know, the Summer Olympics are fully underway in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. My favorite event so far has been swimming, as the beef between the athletes has been incredible. Basketball is a close second, because, you know, basketball is awesome. But why don’t we have the Weather Olympics? I know almost everyone has been dying to have this question answered and fulfilled. Wait no longer. I am bringing you your 2016 Weather Olympics.
