  1. Heat wave coming

    Looks like a guess and a miss, Ajijic Weather is showing 29.6 which is expected this time of year. 99% of these kinds of predictions are done remotely with no factoring of the Lake's unique moderating climate. It's warm in TX today at 84, it's good for our blue bonnets, in 2 months we'll pray for 84. Weather happens, enjoy it. They say that an 80% chance of rain is because someone stuck their head in the backroom and asked and 8 of the 10 people thought it would rain - same here.
  2. Daylight Saving Time

    You know, I've been "saving" daylight for 75 years now, but the daylight time seems to be the same as it was back in the 40's, the sun comes up, the sun goes down, I don't get it?
  3. I want to move to Lake Chapala

    Be aware of the "seasons". April/May the first part of June are the July/August of north of the border climes. It's dry, not so green and hot. Once the rain starts mid June everything is green and almost cool at times.
  4. Old pesos vs current

    Looks like another border run will be necessary, I tried to get into my online and the token doesn't give a working number. Am I surprised?
  5. Old pesos vs current

    As it turns out they're new currency, but I didn't even take them with me, so maybe next time. The two main purposes of the trip were to get a new debit card which I did eventually manage and then to get some inhalers for my asthma. I took the new card directly from the bank to a farmacia on the other side of the block and it was rejected 3 times and of course locked? - so, I paid in USD, just another typical day in MX.
  6. Old pesos vs current

    It's only some 50's and 20's. I'm heading down to Acuna tomorrow and thought if any good I'd use them for tolls etc. They have Juarez and Morelos on them, so probably old.
  7. I found some folding pesos in a box, how do I tell if they're current or the old ones no longer valid?
  8. You're probably looking for ajijicweather.com which is the website. This and several others are transmitted to Wunderground Weather, but ajijicweather is the only one with a "personal" website.
  9. Bypass Lagos de Moreno?

    I let my Garmin take me through town - once? - never ever again, it was horrendous.
  10. Making streets

    It would immediately be outlawed in MX. Why? - because it doesn't employ nearly enough people, you know how that works, you can't eliminate MXN jobs, you can create them, but not the other way, so basically forget it. There would be a 10,000% import fee just to make sure.
  11. Brrrrr! Cold weather

    It's happening all over, yesterday morning up here in TX we "warmed" to 13 degrees with a 10 degree wind chill, but we'll be 75 Saturday, winters don't last long here.
  12. I'm looking for someone willing to bring a few small items N into TX, passing anywhere through the San Antonio - Austin areas, or Del Rio. Timing not critical. PM me for details. Thanks
  13. Chapalaweather down

    cafeterraneo, pm me with the links you need and I'll see what I can do. Other than death and taxes, all things are ephemeral, it was an interesting thing which now remains in yesterday.
  14. Chapalaweather down

    La Floresta is a different station with different weather equipment, it's IJALISCO63 in WU with no website, while the original ChapalaWeather was IJALISCO25. The original CW has ceased operations. An attempt to continue it was made, it wasn't successful.
  15. Well, it would give the cartels better access to the N shore.
