....not much to report, except that a few small
"rain events" have cooled things off slightly this
week. Here are the rain amounts so far this month:

Sept. 1: .48/inch
Sept. 9: .11 "
Sept. 10: .05 "
Sept. 12: .03 "
Sept. 13: .20 "
Sept. 14: .21 "
(Total - 1.08 inches)

I know these figures look really pathetic compared to other Septembers, but they do help bring daily temperatures down from an average 89.8F/32C high so far this month. Last September's rainfall total
was 13.38 inches. We have a long way to go to catch up, but 2004's Sept. total was only 4.09 inches and maybe we're in one of those years.

No developing storms that might affect us in the
near future - 97L should take almost the same track as Jimena and will pass very far offshore.
We're in an area of unstable weather this week, which is contributing to nightly sprinkles - sometimes accompanied by thunder and lightning - but never developing into anything exciting.

The US and Canada also seem to be experiencing
strange weather this year - I'd love to hear from
any of you out there who have good weather tales
to tell.

Tonight in the jardine, the Grito will be read at approx. 10:30 or 11 PM (not sure if there will also be fireworks). I hope I can stay awake to hear the shouts of "Vive Mexico" after the speech - if you've never been part of this celebration (anywhere in Mexico) - you should try to experience it at some point. It's a moving example of how proud Mexicans are of their country - and a lot of fun to be a part of.
