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.
