I was curious about why the waves are still so high (and LOUD, even up here on the hill) so I checked out Tropical Storm Miriam, which was downgraded to a tropical depression this morning. Miriam had formed|
southwest of us on Saturday - far out in the Pacific -
so was never considered a threat to Mexico. However, the current coordinates are approx. 19.9N / 114W - slightly north of our 19.1N position, so these waves must be coming off the remants of that system, which is currently almost stationary. Until it moves or dissipates the waves will probably continue. I feel so sorry for the local fishermen - their pongas are still out of the water (many still tied up on the banks of the arroyo) - and they've been standing on the beach, making sure their boats are safe and waiting for the waves to die down, for days now.
The good news is that there isn't a tropical storm in
