Hurricane Bud

I’m sitting here watching the effects of Hurricane Bud roll in to La Manzanilla via the web cam of Daniel, whose next door neighbor I am every January and February.  If you want to see what I am seeing, go HERE:

Daniel is sitting on the deck of the house I have rented for these two months for the past seven years.  If I should happen to go into the kitchen for something and you see a big wave get him while I’m gone, please call 911!!!

Usually, Daniel is surrounded by friends on the occasion of the sunset, but I can see that they are fair weather friends.


Oh oh.  Got back from flipping the hamburger in the kitchen and I see Daniel is gone, too, but the webcam hasn’t given up.  Thanks, Daniel, for the view. Sure hope you just went in for another beer or to check your webcam or the internet in general.

Looks like Daniel has closed down the cam for the night, but it will be on again tomorrow and by the tide charts, it looks like the tides will be slightly higher tomorrow, so go have a look.  It’s mesmerizing.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I think everyone is fine. The wind doesn’t look that bad. During Hurricane Patricia, it took off the entire porch Daniel was sitting on. You can see the corner of it on the cam. It also broke down the glass sliding doors and water surged through the entire house. They had it repaired by January, however, and the bamboo porch turned into the one with the stone wall surrounding it.

    Half an hour later than your above comment, the cam is unavailable — I hope that’s because of the time difference or something like that — but should I call 911?

      No Janet…He turns the cam off when it gets dark. It also freezes up sometimes. I meant that tongue in cheek as there really wasn’t a danger. So sorry if you took it seriously. I need to be more careful.

        I wondered — I think you are two time zones east of us, and thought it might have been turned off. We’re supposed to get big wves from your storm too — maybe I should get down to the beach for a look!
