The weather is a changin
Yesterday and the day before the skies above the lake were filled with billowy clouds. We haven't seen dark clouds in awhile, so it appears that Spring is sprung, the land is ready for some rain, which will start in a month or so.
Not having checked my almanac, don't even know if there is one for Mexico, but I started getting warm for these parts.
We went to Morelia yesterday and it was in the low 90's. Returning to Patzcuaro around 4 was indicating 77 degrees on the outside weather gauge.
It will continue being in the mid 80's to low 90's around the area for awhile, and as long as you are not in the direct sun it is pleasant, with little or no humidity in these here parts.
We were thinking of running over to the beach, but I think we have missed our window of good temperature, since a friend came back from Zihuatanejo and said that it was warm to hot during the days and they had to run the AC in the evening for several hours to cool down.
AC, a cool Michelada, ( A Michelada is a drink that is made with your favorite beer, Clamato or Tomato juice, served in a salt rimmed glass with ice in it ) the beach then Semana Santa or Holy Week will arrive, so all the beaches and resorts will fill up with locals from Mexico City and around the country.
Not a good time to be looking for a quiet getaway anywhere in the land.
There are many things to do, for one we need to replace our gutters for the oncoming rainy season. The roof overhaul is almost finished so the big project for the year is almost history. We will be able to spend more time reading and running around, unless we need to get involved in another maintenance project around the property......
