Whopper of a storm hits Arroyo Seco, no power, but lots of water

ARROYO SECO, Jalisco, Mexico - A thunderstorm that lasted for hours walloped little Arroyo Seco (and the rest of the Costalegre) bringing six inches of rain to some towns, and maybe half that much here. Anything we would use as a rain gauge got blown over and dumped in the high winds that hit in the middle of the night.

Most impressive was the lightning display.

In all the storms I've seen in New York, California and the midwestern U.S., nothing comes close.

We are checking today to see if our sailing amigos in Tenacatita Bay are all right.

The Admiral several times in the night said, " I am soooooo glad we are not out at anchor."


Here's a video of the storm - and the aftermath.
