As I sit here, listening to the rain hit our tiles on the roof, the temperature outside is in the mid 60's. Just about right!
This afternoon it was hovering in the low 80's and in our assent up the mountain we experience a 5 to 10 degree cooling trend.
I am glad that the Patzcuaro weather here is so moderate. But if you ask the locals they will tell you that it gets downright cold and freezing.
They have not experienced what freezing is, nor have they experienced the heat of the California Desert , or Phoenix, Gila Bend or New Orleans with the nice humidity.
The draw to Patzcuaro was and is the mild climate. Great for the body, spirit and soul.
Not to great for our corn or pepper crop.
Days ago I was sweltering in the hot humid coast of Mexico. Mid 90's and dropping down to the mid 80's when the sun drops behind the distant clouds that hide it from bubbling into the ocean, leaving semi humid breeze less nights.
The motel we stayed at had the air conditioning in our bedroom running 24 hours a day....and that's not cheap even down here.
Here the fire is crackling in the bedroom fireplace, you've seen the pictures before and you can just imagine it now.
Well, back to the reading.......maybe some tea, too late for a stong coffee. I'll save that for tomorrow in the morning.
