Hurricanes, Tropical Storms and Depressions


Hola! Here are some clouds we had on Monday and Tuesday. We had three inches of steady rain at our house on Wednesday. It started in the afternoon, fell over a long period of time, and our yard was a flowing river, with little lakes every few feet. But when I went out later there was not a lot of standing water in town and the Chalaton Arroyo was dry. 

Senor has kept an eye this morning on the satellite and it actually shows us in the northern spread now of Hurricane Manuel, which has evidently been down graded to a Tropical Storm after coming ashore near Culiacan.

 There is absolutely nothing happening here. It is very still and quiet, a little overcast and very warm,and no breeze. In fact I don't hear any birds, just the horse neighing in the field next door.

 It is a little unnerving knowing something might be out there. That is how it was the day Norbert hit; quiet, still, hot. Manuel has already done enough damage to Mexico. We don't want anymore. So we will hope for just some rain and wind and nothing more.

Independence Day in Alamos was packed with people and great photographic opportunities. I'll show you some of those photos later.
Right now, lunch and siesta and the waiting game begins.
Que le vaya bien. Linda Lou

Good luck to you two with Manuel. He gave us a lot of wind and rain here in Mazatlan but it's almost sunny again now. (But so much cooler!)

Fingers crossed.

Great photos, this is the season for dramatic photos...

All is past here, Nancy. It has moved into the Copper Canyon. Hot and sunny here now and yes, Tancho, maybe some good cloud photo ops to the east later.

I was wondering how it was your way but guess Manuel came in south of you. Mexico south of Vallarta just got soaked. We got a lot but nothing like the Acapulco area. Fell so bad for them

Glad to hear that did pass over to the canyon.
Nice to read the other comments and know that they are all well also.
