Woohoo! Big wind, hard rain and COOL!


Recommended Posts

I was without electricity for about 15 minutes. All fine now. However, the wind did rip an awning in half over my back glassed roofed atrium. Time to put the right stuff on the glass.

Still out in Las Salvias too.

 The UPS is keeping the internet up but the one for the TV crapped out after 20 minutes. Time for another battery.

CFE seems to have some major issues heading into the rainy season. 

Just received this from Telmex. Thanks a lot

I'm glad you have internet, say I, Pete, up here in Seattle for my annual spring visit, waiting for the rainy season to start before returning.

Ian, tonight was not a minor shower. It was a rain storm and a wind storm combined. Enough to knock out many power grids. It's not just here that the power grid has problems. Also in Texas... Texans asked to turn up thermostats after sweltering heat knocks six power plants offline (msn.com) The advantage of living here is that you can get by without air conditioning or heat. A tinaco solves the problem of having to rely on electricity for a pump. Here no electricity is an inconvenience not a disaster.

We are happy for the amount of rain we received.  The power outages always happen here in Brisas de Chapala, so we were not surprised.  Happens like this almost every year about a month before rainy season actually begins.

Not the beginning of the rainy season but sure a nice break from the heat and dust.  Power was off for about an hour, not bad considering how strong the winds were.  Big pool cleaning job this morning.

A power pole fell across the Guad/Chapala carretera near the Sane hot sauce plant. Traffic into Chapala had to be re-routed until CFE made the repair. CH, Brisas, and pretty much all of Chapala was affected.

The first "gusts" sounded like a tornado, so it's no surprise that trees and power poles fell.

Anybody measure how much rain?  I’m putting my rain gauge out today. 

I will put my rain guage out soon. Much cooler but only partial power for about 10 hours.
