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!

Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

Nov. 30, 2007 — I recently got a link to a set of photos on Flickr that were taken on Sept 12, 2007, the day that the waterspout (tromba in Spanish) hit our town of San Juan Cosala. I just browsed through them, and found a lot of fascinating details:

I’ve posted this next link before, but it seems handy to have it with the other one…here are the photos on Flickr that my husband Kelly took, on Sept.12 and later, regarding this amazing event:

    There was NO waterspout. I was living here at the time and for one week prior to the landslide it rained heavily every night. My rain guage on the 12 showed 5.5 inches over night. That tremendous amount of water could not be absorbed by the mountains nor handled by the arroyos…the result was a deluge of water pouring down from the mountains. I spent the next week helping with the cleanup and did NOT see any lyrio, fish or anything that would have been deposited from the lake if there had been a waterspout.

    That is the first really good argument against there having been a waterspot that I have read. Very interesting.
