Not to jinx our continuing good luck this tropical storm season, but it appears that Todos Santos will once again miss the brunt of the storm. Saturday and Sunday were scary, watching Rick gain strength and projections had him making landfall slightly north of Todos Santos, then in Todos Santos and then south at Cabo San Lucas. Today Rick is projected to go south of Cabo and weaken to tropical storm strength by then. Hopefully he will continue to head further south and spare Baja Sur all but the rain.

Speaking of rain, it’s been difficult to know when and where it has rained. The downpours have been very localized. Yesterday I was in Pescadero (7 miles south of Todos Santos) watching football and it stormed for nearly 1 hour. Satellite TV signals were lost but power stayed on. 7 miles north in Todos Santos, it hardly sprinkled at all. Today I drove to Cabo and from Art & Beer to Cabo San Lucas, it rained. Again, nearly not a drop in Todos Santos.
But fear not, it’s been a good rainy season. We have had our share. The roads are full of ruts to prove it!!!
