Oh Baby it's Cold Outside
As you imagine anyone living down in Mexico is enjoying the warm sandy beaches, think again.
I have mentioned it before that our house has 3 fireplaces and that is the source of heat we use. We do have a propane wall furnace that is in our bathroom, but for the most part it's the fireplaces that we rely on.
I wish we were on the warm sandy beaches right now.
It is cold at night and as soon as the sun sets, get out the sweater and stoke the fire.
Last week it had dropped down into the mid 30's at night, and that's on the chilly side.
This week we have been hovering in the 40's at night and 60's during the day. Since we live a little ways out of town, up the mountain, we general will get about 5 or 6 degrees colder than town which is down in a bowl, surrounding a lake.
I think it 's time to start thinking about a jaunt to the low sea level beaches of Zihuatanejo where currently its in the mid to high 80's.
Or finish building the greenhouse we have been planning and put a lawn chair in there along with some ice tea.
