The waves have been quite high for the past couple of days, washing up to and in some places over the new beachfront walkway. I saw turtle tracks where a sea turtle came up from the water and apparently went back into the water without laying its eggs. Maybe from all the obstacles it ran into or the lost 2 meters of beach recently paved over ¡Se los dije! I also saw where a couple of palm trees near the canal are about to have the sand washed out from under them because it was a piss poor spot to plant palm trees. They should've left the ones that were already grown near there. Now their dead root systems will no longer protect the beach as they previously had done. Another ¡se los dije!

Today was another picture postcard perfect day with perfect temps, puffy white clouds and deep blue skies. The sun was quite fierce during the midday hours, as is common during the longest days of the year when we receive its light more directly at our latitude. Dangerous for us paler-skinned folks and much stronger than it used to be when Lupita and I were young. Even in the inland cities folks were being warned to use sunblock on the national weather reports.

We had a nationwide earthquake simulacro today at 11:30 AM. Lupita and I did our thing. Did anyone else here participate?

I will admit, I was completely unaware that a simulacro was scheduled for today. :-(

There's an app called SkyAlert that millions of us who live in Mexico's earthquake zones have and subscribe to. I believe it was originally developed just for CDMX residents, but it has expanded its utility for regions like ours even though we often don't get as much warning as chilangos do. The app not only alerts us in advance of earthquakes, depending on their distance from us, but it also warns us of simulacros and other major regional weather and natural events. I highly recommend it.
