Last Big Storm of Season

Recommended Posts

So far nothing but drizzle between Punta Mita and Sayulita. Helluva homecoming! At least by yesterday evening I had gotten the bad water pressure pump repaired, the compressor on the big fridge replaced, gas delivered, water delivered, but of course, absolutely nothing unpacked.....SOOOO happy I brought back some beautiful veg from the lake or I would have a bare cupboard! And also glad this ain't my first rodeo after growing up on the Texas coast. Also my house is maybe 400' above sea level.....I'll keep you updated.

Just received word in PV that CFE will be cutting all power at 2:00 PM. Drizzle and light winds right now but it suddenly got much cooler. PV is locked down. No buses, taxis and very few cars out. Bathtub is full of water since without power our building has no water pressure. Our gas will also be cut when our handyman leaves. Kindles are charged, hopefully it's a whole lot of boredom and nothing worse.

GOOD Advice from traveler.

Went through Jimena and thought nothing of it till three stormy days later, and would have paid anything for supplies!

They're saying that it's going to be the largest hurricane on record! Hang on to your hats guys. Anyone heard from Elke?

Elke posted elsewhere that the military had been by to tell them to evacuate by 1 p.m. She later posted that they had decided to stay.

Colon is being dug up on the part of the street by the bank. It looked like loads of water under the surface. There was a car behind me so I couldn't stop to get a better look.

Hope they know what they're doing. Mother Nature can be one scary bitch. Their place is not that far from the beach.

Where is Elke posting?

I tried to get back on Tomzap..used to be a member but forgot my password. They sent me a new password but my computer is having fits over it being unsafe. Do you think I should go ahead and try it?

Has there been any other info?

THIS JUST IN FROM LCS IN AJIJIC

In deference to the local and state government's request to remain at
home
due to weather conditions caused by Hurricane Patricia, the Lake
Chapala
Society will be closed on Saturday, October 24, 2016.

The Ajijic Delgado has
asked the LCS to be prepared to serve as a
shelter in case of an emergency.
If and when we are notified the LCS
will provide our facilities to the
community:

Other shelters in Ajijic include:

* The Cultural Center on
the plaza in Ajijic
* Marcos Castellanos Elementary School on the corner of
Marcos
Castellanos and the Parroquie across from San Andres Church
* Saul
Rodeles Elementary School on Hidalgo between Juaraz and
Aquiles Serdan

As
Hurricane Patricia moves inland, it will continue to produce heavy
rainfall,
wind, and dangerous conditions. Persons located inland in
the path of
Hurricane Patricia should take appropriate measures to
ensure their safety,
particularly those located in areas prone to
flooding or
mudslides.

Power still on in PV (thank you CFE). Very light rain and no wind, looks like coming ashore south of us.

As one who's lived in places with long standing power outages, I suggest that if you have a bathtub, fill it so you'll at least have "flushing" and hand washing water.

Probably know by some, but.... the most severe part of a hurricane is the 'right' side. It is that side that will experience the greatest storm surge prior to and even after landfall. "Some" are predicting a 30' storm surge from this monster storm. I think it would be folly to try and ride out this storm especially on that side.

According to the Weather Chanel forecast for Ajijic, the winds should shift from ESE to SE at about 9 PM this evening and when that happens we will know that the storm is beginning to move past us. Fingers crossed everyone

I've been watching this all along. The graph had been showing Patricia downgraded to Tropical storm as it passes over us and Guadalajara.

Now it's showing Cat 3. http://www.wunderground.com/wundermap/?lat=12.9&lon=-96.8&zoom=6&rad=0&wxsn=0&svr=0&cams=0&sat=0&riv=0&mm=0&hur=1&hur.wr=0&hur.cod=1&hur.fx=1&hur.obs=1&fire=0&ft=0&sl=0

The hurricane is reported to have come ashore some 15 minutes ago in the Punta Perula/Chamela Bay area. Found this on Tomzap.
