I drove to the airport in San Jose del Cabo today – a friend needed a ride. After shopping for a few hours, I headed back to Todos Santos around 3:45 pm local time. About 25 miles south of Todos Santos, puddles of water started showing up on the sides of the road. The skies were very grey to the north, over Todos Santos. By the time I reached Rancho Nuevo, it was raining hard and the skies were even darker north toward Todos Santos.
You might recall that there is massive road construction under way between Los Cabos and Todos Santos. The rain continued all the way to Todos Santos and the dirt portions of the road construction were an absolute mess. The heaviest rain seemed to be around Pescadero. It’s still raining in Todos Santos now, 6:33 pm local time, but it never rained as hard here. Nevertheless, we have our first real summer rain, enough to wash dust off of everything and leave some puddles.
