Yesterday I realized it was a year ago this weekend that my mom first visited Zihua. It'd be pretty hot up until that point, but her visit coincided with the hottest week of the summer. It was bearable before she arrived, and it cooled off once she left, but those four days she was here... whew!
I remembered all this as I was walking through the plaza yesterday to meet a friend and I wasn't dripping with sweat. Usually, if I'm outside for more than ten minutes, I need another shower. Don't get me wrong, after window shopping for two hours then eating lunch outside, I was highly in need of some soap, but the temperature was almost balmy compared to how it's been for the past month.
I have a thermometer in my house that also gives the humidity level (50-60% is considered normal). It's actually below 80 degrees inside today (78) but the humidity is the highest it's been this year: 85%.
Can you hear me dripping from there?
UPDATE: As soon as I posted, my satellite lost the signal due to a sudden downpour. I went online to check for storms and found this:
We're between Colima and Acapulco. Batten down the hatches!
