¡Híjole! ¡Qué sala’o estamos!

The storm just stopped before it reached us. Nothing but a lot of wind and lightning and a few tantalizing drops of precious liquid reached Zihuatanejo after people literally went running for shelter as this huge storm looked ready to swallow Zihuatanejo. Un-friggin-believable!

Or maybe not.

Yep! Scared the cat and then was gone.

I do appreciate how it brought the temperatures down though :-)

Dust storm

Definitely! But it also kicked up a dust storm here in town so that everything got covered with a layer of dust and sand after Lupita had just spent much of the day cleaning the floors. After righting plants on our azotea and bunching some of them together so they could withstand the wind, I had to shake the dust out the bedsheets before going to sleep.

The sand was blowing so hard on the beach out front that people left running and screaming.

Terrific light show, though.
