Snow falls on the Nevado de Colima

GUADALAJARA, JAL., Jan. 2 .- The cold front number 21 brought the first snowfall to the higher peak Jalisco 2010. The Nevado de Colima woke up Sunday with two inches of snow, as confirmed by the director of the State Unit of Civil Protection and Fire, Trinidad López Rivas.

Information released by the daily Milenio Guadalajara, said that the snow appeared on the top of the mountains from three thousand feet above sea level, a site that is accessible to visitors. However, until this afternoon observers had not appeared, perhaps driven away by rain.

If it stops raining Sunday we'll be awaiting the arrival of visitors to witness the snowy landscape and the Civil Protection Unit is already prepared.

"It's suggested that those with the idea of going to the snow bring warm clothes because the temperature is 2 to 3 degrees Celsius," said Lopez Rivas.

After Christmas in Bend, I do not need any more snow -- especially in Mexico.

I'm told we haven't had proper settled snow fall in the centre of DF since 1967, before I was born. But it sure feels cold enough....

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
