No new active cases of Covid-19 to report in the entire state of Guerrero.

Our hurricane season starts this Sunday. It rained hard in Petatlán overnight. We should be next. Rivers and arroyos will soon flow and closed barras will soon open up. I'll be happy to see green hillsides again! I wonder what day we'll get our first real rain?

This is the time of year when we pretty much have Zihuatanejo all to ourselves with hardly any tourists around. The tranquility is almost overwhelming. Hardly anyone on the streets, walkways or the pier. Unfortunately the Blue Flag beaches are just as unfriendly and useless as ever for most locals, and it's a damn shame our city government doesn't even care.

Sea turtles should begin arriving in larger numbers this coming month, so keep an eye out for them.

Our pozole this Thursday from La Jaiba Feliz was extremely delicious, as usual. What a privilege it is to live in Guerrero even though the U.S. government lists us as a DO NOT TRAVEL TO state. Hmmm... Maybe that makes me like it here even more. ;-)

Sounds like it's time to solicit for days of first real rain.

Please make your guesses and become King for the year!!!! The last two years, the male of Talleyho has won, but last year shared it with ZihuaRob. This year???

His guess for this year is not his usual June 5, but WAIT he just changed his mind and said June 5 again.

Mine? May 30 because I like the number.

We always discuss getting together for beer/whatever with the winner, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe this year without COVID?????

Who will be El Rey del Ano or La Reina del ano?????

I will be brave and go with May 18th, though I do question what amount of rain is adequate to qualify?

Well, it's gotta be more than a sprinkle. B-)

I already lost. I thought it would rain before now. Lupita says "el primero de junio. El Día de la Marina."

I wonder how hot and humid it's going to get before the first rain? Will it get so hot you start sweating as soon as you get out of the shower? And will it get any smokier? So far we've been pretty lucky with the smoke. :smoking:

Many years ago we lived on South Caicos in the Caribbean. Our standing joke was that there was no reason to towel off after a shower, you were just as wet when you got out as you were when you got in!

Lupita is seriously in the running with June 1, sorry you missed, wish you had been right!

At least today, the smoke is a non issue. Sure hope it stays that way!!!
