Category 4 Hurricane Odile passed by (well, it passed by on the Baja Peninsula) and we were worried that the wind, rain, and storm surge would be worse than what we received from Norbert. But thankfully last night Odile gave us mostly wind and waves. We fared so much better than those poor folks over in Cabo, what a night they had over there!
The palapas along the malecón have really had a time of it. First Hurricane Marie, then Norbert, and now Odile each gave them a beating. Several palapas are gone, leaving a few traces but not enough for me to remember which they were.
The sand has been rearranged everywhere. Some places lost a lot, and others gained too much. Everyone is just stunned. Well, that is except the surfers and boogie boarders. They love the opportunity to ride waves anytime, anywhere.
The government did a good job with announcements and planning. They announced schools would be closed today early yesterday and I just read that the Grito this evening will continue as planned. Below is a short video from this morning’s walk.
