Our umbrella became dislodged from the base and flew onto the terrace and tore! Then the umbrella on the rooftop patio went flying through the air and landed on the neighbour's patio. Thankfully, no one was hurt. I was walking downtown about 1/2 an hour earlier and had to keep my eyes half-closed because of all the flying grit!

What's the wind chill factor? 70 degrees?
I hope you are able to tuff it out.

Hello ellen. Hope you are not mad at my posts. Ayway, you Canadians put up with some pretty miserable weather. I can see why PV is a treasured destination.

Hello pdxbuff. No, I´m not mad - I can tell you´re "joshing". In fact, I thought your remark about the 70 degree windchill factor was hilarious - not to mention right on the mark.

I didnt know what the heck was going on. It started rather quickly and then things were flying around, doors and windows were slamming open and shut, people surrying around and then it was over, just like that. But what a glorious morning the following day. Even the usual morning haze over the water had disappeared.

that night was the tail wagging as the clouds has hovered over all week
agree
that it was calm before the storm
as winds came in gushes
blowing all doors and windows around
everyone started calling to see if the pheonoium was for real
and to chk up on each other
even some police officials stopped by friends

all back to a sereen life of the tropics

still loving vallarta
