A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!

May 2, 2006 — Last night we had our second rainstorm since we moved to our house in San Juan Cosala. The first one was on Easter and was spectacular. The one yesterday was on Mexican Labor Day. It was a sweet rainfall for about three hours in the evening. We were very grateful for it, as we are conserving water since the town water is still out.

Just about the minute we heard the first raindrops, we heard a loud popping noise from down the street, and there went our electricity. We sat on the porch and watched the storm till we got cold… for the first time since the last storm… and then we came in and puttered around a while by candlelight.

I couldn’t reach the electric company by phone last night but I did this morning. The woman said it would be about an hour and a half. Kelly decided to hang out down the street near the pole and talk to the repairmen when they came. He took something to read, luckily, because they turned up about four hours later, after Kelly had chatted with several children who were curious what a gringo was doing sitting on the sidewalk.

Our Mexican neighbors think it’s great that we call, since few of them have phones and they feel that we are taken more seriously. Kelly did talk with the repairman, who said it could have been lightning or a bird, but he did replace something.

So we’ll see what happens the next time it rains. Could that be today? It’s still partly cloudy. On the other hand, tomorrow and Friday are holidays of sorts, so maybe it will be one of them.
