If the sudden drop in temperature made you revert to your winter ways of heavy tea-drinking, cardigan-wearing, looking up cute animals online and over-eating with the Superbowl as an excuse, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s forget the food stains and questionable Netflix choices and take a look at what happened over the weekend.

  • As you probably noticed, there were intense thunderstorms over the weekend, including gales of over 50 kilometers an hour, which hit Buenos Aires province very hard with power cuts and evacuations. Over 100 trees were uprooted in Mar del Plata and the Atlantic Cost, one of which killed a 27-year-old man in La Plata and marine tornados destroyed several resorts — in the video below you can see an example in Pinamar.
  • The Buenos Aires neighborhood of Hurlingham is reeling after a man murdered six people and injured three and is now on the run. Diego Loscalzo murdered his partner, police officer Romina Maguna, by shooting her at point blank range during an argument last night. Loscalzo went on to kill Romina’s sister Vanesa and her partner, Darío Daniel Díaz. Then he went to Maguna’s parents’ house and killed her mother, Juana Paiva, along with her brother José Maguna. José’s pregnant wife, Mónica Beatriz Lloret, was injured and lost the baby that was due to be born today. A 36-year-old neighbor and a 12-year-old girl were also hurt during Loscalzo’s rampage.

  • Celebrations for the Chinese New Year were held once again in Plaza Parques Nacionales Argentinos throughout the weekend to welcome the Year of the Rooster, 4715 in the Chinese calendar. The amount of people that take part in the festivities grows every year, and 2017 is no different: there are no official numbers yet, but 600,000 are suspected to have been present over Saturday and Sunday alone.

  • The Argentine film El ciudadano ilustre, directed by Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn, received a Goya Film Award yesterday for Best Iberoamerican Film at the Goya Film Awards Ceremony held in Madrid. This is the third year in a row that Argentina has received a Goya award after Damián Szifrón’s Relatos salvajes and Pablo Trapero’s El clan.
