May 15th

The web site was activated early this season with the low that swept in about a week ago but normally today would be the day. Sure were hoping for a little rain but didn't get it and none is showing for the future. I was forced to leave sprinklers on over night so my garden can get at least a little water that they let loose.

Today we're off to Manzanillo for some shopping and Burger King for the kids.

TODAY MARKS THE FIRST DAY OF THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC HURRICANE SEASON, WHICH WILL RUN UNTIL NOVEMBER 30. LONG-TERM AVERAGES FOR THE NUMBER OF NAMED STORMS, HURRICANES, AND MAJOR HURRICANES ARE 15, 8, AND 4, RESPECTIVELY.

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.
