Typical muggy morning - and then the rain hit! Que es esto?

ARROYO SECO, Jalisco, Mexico - While Admiral Fox was off playing some music with amigos today at Boca de Iguanas, Chief Education Officer Laura Warner and I made a foray to the nearby town of Emiliano Zapata, a few miles away, to buy paint, bricks and, of course, a delicious rotisserie chicken for dinner.

Oh! And we needed to buy more Off insect spray, something in short supply in La Manzanilla.

No problem in Zapata. And they had it in the spray cans. Very efficient.

But on the return trip we noticed that some of the trucks heading north were using their windshield wipers.

How odd, we thought? It couldn't be!

But it was.

We started getting the rain around 1 p.m. that had apparently begun earlier in La Manz. Not heavy rain, not the kind of rain that even makes much in the way of mud. But rain, anyway.

And with it, cooler temps and now less humidity than this morning's heavy air that felt like New York City in August.

Bring on the rain, por favor.
