I drove around town looking to see what damage the storm might have done. Basically none! Streets are dirty with leaves, mud and some small tree limbs. Cafelix lost his big metal sign – the metal post appears to have blown over at the sidewalk level.
Many businesses are closed. There aren’t many people out on the streets, tourists or local. Town is quiet. I am not going to post photos since there is nothing to really see.
Right now the sun is out, skies partly cloudy, temps moderate, the wind is still blowing from the south at 20+ mph and there are whitecaps on the ocean. Jimena was odd in that the winds never shifted. Normally when a storm passes on the west side of us, we get southeast, then south, then west winds. The winds have been from the south for the entire storm period. Go figure.
Also odd this storm – the fact that we mostly didn’t lose power, water or phone. I heardthat some localized areas lost power due to their transformers failing but there was not a system wide failure. Kudos to CFE (electric commission), aqua municipal and Telmex.
That’s all for now.
