North America / United States / Maryland Jonas, the storm that brought crippling, blizzard conditions to the east coast in the early months of 2016 was a fierce storm indeed.

Cuenca is surrounded by mountains, but it is not a vertical city that is actually built INTO the mountains like Quito. This means there are far fewer observation points because the mountains are actually quite far away.
