Zih Smoke Monster

The smoke monster has arrived and the temps are also rising, though not near as bad for us as for much of central and southern Mexico. We remain considerably more fortunate than a lot of folks. Schools remain closed in the Valle de México metropolitan area, what we call the Megalópolis. Soccer matches scheduled for Mexico City have had to be moved to other cities, and they've instituted the contingency measure "Doble Hoy No Circula" to remove twice the number of vehicles as normal from the roads.

We haven't hit 40°C and above temps yet, but much of the country has. I noticed Florida is also expecting record high temperatures in much of the central and southern parts of the state.

But at least the mar de fondo seems to have passed.

Don't forget tomorrow is the XXXV Triatlón Internacional Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. The streets of Ixtapa will be closed to traffic from 7AM until after the event. We've always been able to get to Ixtapa Boulevard via Paseo de los Viveros and Paseo de las Golondrinas. This is a terrific event worth the effort to go to. Let's welcome these world class athletes and show them our support.

That sneaky Lupita caught me. ;-)

The smoke monster is here.
