First, it has been raining off and on for 2 days. Wednesday night we had thunder and lightning and just a little rain until around 4 am when it poured for 15-20 minutes. Thursday it was cloudy with some drizzle. It stayed cloudy all night and rained a bit until Friday morning around dawn when it rained in earnest. It is still drizzling now in the mid-afternoon.
This is unusual. We do normally get some rain in the two week period of Christmas/New Years but I can’t recall rain at the end of November. Viewing the radar and infrared loops for the East Pacific at NOAA you can see that it won’t be ending any time soon.
The new music salon (Leo’s) on the other side of town, el otro lado, is having a grand opening on Saturday, December 1. The music will go until 2 am, so this will be the litmus test for those living nearby. It could be very loud but at least the building has a real roof, unlike the Mutualista music hall in bario San Vicente.
Lastly, Brad Baer sent out an email yesterday informing all that the reggae band KL will be playing at the Sandbar every Friday night until further notice. KL is a group of young people from La Paz. The have a lot more energy than Acero Caliente, the usual reggae band around here who hail from Los Cabos.
I have been so busy, it seems I may never get this blog caught up. But I will keep trying.
