La PaZIHón con Vientos Tropicales

Today Zihuatanejo registered its 100th confirmed Covid-19 contagion and its 14th death.

We had a bit of a windstorm blow through Zihuatanejo this afternoon. Had to shut doors and windows because the sand blowing from the beach was so fierce. This was due to a passing tropical disturbance that is not expected to pose any real threat to Zihuatanejo beyond the possibility of severe rains and strong winds. We got the wind but no rain yet.

Had to use our hot water heater yesterday for our evening showers for the first time in months. Had to pull up the bedsheet to sleep last night, too. Love the rainy season as long as it doesn't rain too hard all at once.

Wherever you are, enjoy the evening! B-)

The wind was so much fun!

We both have spent our lives living on beaches, and this is the best one ever.

Southern California, most of our lives, a normal, typical afternoon had at least 20 MPH winds. That was normal. Something you are accustomed to, no surfing, no paddling, usually no beach walks, with or without dogs. Too windy!

Here? Almost every evening, while sitting on our terrace, very close to the water, same distance as California, we talk about the fact that it's still. Dead still. So still that the 40 foot tall coco nut tree 8 feet from the terrace shows absolutely no movement.

The wind this afternoon was really fun! Our weather station (not in the best location right now due to construction) finally recorded 11 MPH. Here it was straight out of the east, so no sand blowing. The temp shot up during the winds to 88 F. As soon as they stopped, and it was sudden, down to 84.

Now, it's dead still as is normal, we'll love the sweaty or cool night, which ever it is.

Living in paradise!!!!!!

Come visit, return to paradise!!!
