  1. This morning, Wednesday, I picked up the receipt for my first vaccination of the Sinovac vaccine.  That took only two hours.  I asked when we would receive the second vaccine.  She replied, the week after next and we would be called.  

    How many times have we been told we would be called?  How many times have we been called?  The only way I get my information is on social media, or from a friend.  Today, while on my early morning walk I bumped into a neighbor and she mentioned that she had picket up her receipt at the purple house yesterday.  The end may be in sight...

  2. Due to strong dust storms that began in the morning hours of Thursday, a section of the Guadalajara to Colima highway was forced to close due to visibility issues.

    Authorities reported after 9:00 AM that the Acatlán de Juárez and Sayula toll plaza in the direction towards Colima were closed, as a result of a strong dust storm from kilometer 12 to 55.


    For those who leave the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (ZMG) heading to Colima, it is recommended to take the free highway to Colima from Acatlán de Juárez.

    After 2:00 PM, Civil Protection and Firefighters of Jalisco reported that the closure continues at the Acatlán de Juárez and Sayula booths.

  4. This past week has seen a shortage of water in my aljibe which I am trying to work with.  Talking with a friend in SIMAPA I found out the the water from the city to the aljibe's in my area (??) is now shut off every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.  He also said that our water trucks are in Guadalajara helping with their water crisis.  Why?, I asked--they gave us the trucks.  I am assuming this is also happening in other areas.  Keep an eye on your aljibe.
