EARTHQUAKE IN SEA OF CORTEZ ABOUT 60 MILES FROM TOWN
Jan. 20, 2007, Title Company Bookstore, Catalina Meders, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
Hola everyone from San Felipe and I am pleased to report that the weather in this part of northern Mexico is warmer.
We have lost the hard winds, although today is a little breezy, and the weather outlook for the next week is good, with a warming trend.
This morning on the bookstore balcony the temperature is 60 degrees and the humidity is around 50 percent. Sitting in the sun feels wonderful. Last night the low was 38 degrees, which didn't feel at all bad after the few days before.
Last Monday someone sent us a photo of the huge icicles hanging on the trees around the new water plant in San Felipe, absolutely surreal looking!.
That was Monday morning. No wonder so many San Felipe people were in bed with sinus infections and very bad cases of "La Gripe."
I went to the play "Cooking With Gus" presented by the San Felipe Players Monday night and the audience looked as if they had just crossed the Siberian tundra as they unwound miles of scarves and divested themselves of layer upon layer of heavy clothing.
The play, by the way, was very funny and both the cast and the audience had a wonderful lighthearted evening.
There was a "light" 4.1 earthquake at 10:21:05 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007, about three miles deep in Mexico's Sea Of Cortez, 60 miles southeast of San Felipe.
This was a somewhat stronger quake than the usual, but so far I haven't found anyone who actually felt anything. Until next week, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
