Ventarrones y ViZIHtas

Here on Playa la Ropa we have been watching our weather station.

On our former Southern California beach we daily had winds to at least 20MPH. With this event here, we hit 33MPH mid afternoon, and then dropped to a high of 22. Now, it's still.

Do realize that we haven't had a wind this high here in almost 2 years. The trees have lost all of their loose stuff, our pool that we cleaned this morning, is full of debris, and the roads have branches down. It's very different here.

It seems to have abated, at least for now. It's a lovely temperature, and we were able to have a great paddle this morning. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Living in the tropics is new to us, very interesting, and we LOVE it very very much. We have been her full time for three years as of two days ago.

We hope that these weather events don't keep anyone from visiting, it's very warm, very clean and very green.

This morning our pool was down to 90F, and the ocean was significantly warmer. This is paradise.

Since the wind has been generally coming from a southeasterly direction, the hills behind La Ropa shelter that part of the bay, and things appear calm to you all while downtown the wind is sandblasting everyone and everything. The "remodeled" plaza looked more like a beach this morning, it was so full of sand. Now that there is only one amate tree on the beach and one other in front of our home, the totally paved plaza acts like a wind tunnel. Its two pathetic new little palms trees ineffective at blocking any wind, unlike the 3 almendro trees that were cut down which did a fair job.

A 32°C pool is still bathtub warm. (Don't know why you're still using Imperial measurements.) ;-)
