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.
Right now, lunch and siesta and the waiting game begins.
Que le vaya bien. Linda Lou
