Overcast and cloudy this morning - small amount|
of rain last night (.05 in.) and probably more today.
No large storms in the area. It's been really hot these first 2 days of August - we were in Manzanillo
yesterday and the temperature was in the 93/94F (33/34C) degree range all day (no rain).
July was a beautiful month this year - not really hot
and with no big storms blowing through.
Avg. high temperature: 87.4F/ 31C (highest: 90.5)
Avg. low temperature: 80.9F/ 27C
Avg. high humidity: 79%
Avg. low humidity: 62%
Total rainfall: 9.61 inches (9.51 inches last year)
Many Mexican families in town, enjoying the last of
summer vacation time (school starts again here on
August 20th). Rocks on the beach, potholes filled
with water, loud music at night - none of this interferes
with their enjoyment of their time here. We could all
learn a lot from their spirit of tolerance and ability to
overlook the small things that we gringos seem to
obsess over. I don't enjoy the loud music from the
plaza at night (and "music" isn't really an accurate
term for some of what's played) but we've learned to
close the windows, turn on the a/c and block it out.
My only regret is that the Mexicans seem to have
embraced some of the worst of OUR culture - disco
music played at decibel levels that actually distort
sound - on speakers that wouldn't be allowed most
places in the world unless they were contained in
closed-in, soundproof buildings. Mexicans didn't
develop all of this - this is gringo-produced technology
that doesn't have anything to do with traditional Latino
culture. I just wish someone would come into town
with slightly smaller speakers and some of the really
great music Mexico produces - both past and present.
I know the majority of the local population would welcome it.
And that's all I have to say about that!
