Key Messages for Hurricane Rosa 


From The National Hurricane Center

Hurricane Rosa Public Advisory 


So in our location Rosa will hit as a Tropical Storm.  The authorities are ready and prepared, schools will be shut down Monday and Tuesday. 

Weather permitting, Tuesday (10/02) @ midnight the main aqueduct valve will be shut down as previously planned affecting 460 colonias in Tijuana and Rosarito Beach.  There will be no water until Friday the 5th.  

So, if you don't have a pila, well you know how the story goes.  Here, I'm doing laundry like crazy so we don't drain the pila - Paris needs her blankies washed, she insists. The last time we went through this, when the H20 came back on it blew pipes and there was massive flooding in homes and on the streets.  We installed a pressure regulator, hope it works. Hope we don't have to replace the roof again. Yep, Rosa is creating a SSE swell, but I wouldn't go out in the water, nope. Late yesterday afternoon you could feel the humidity building.  Get out your candles, if the electricity stays on at SADM it will be nothing short of a milagro.

ACTUALIZACION: Seran 460 Colonias Las Que Se Quedaran Sin Aqua En Tijuana y Rosarito 


UPDATE/edit @ 3:00pm:

Here is the latest on Hurricane Rosa which has been significantly downgraded, particularly for our region.  I could not find information if the schools south of Ensenada and San Felipe will still be shut down this coming Monday & Tuesday.   So, we are still expecting rain and most likely the electricity will go out here at SADM:

Oh soory, that's the narco tunnel out in Jacume across from Jacumba Hot Springs from a few days back courtesy Proceso...they are reporting it was very sophisticated .
More pics & info here.

Here's the quake:

UPDATE/edit 09/29 3:09pm:

I said I wasn't going to this, but here are links for all the latest on the Kavanaugh  disaster.  At The Intercept, hoping they will bundle all of their reports on this recent travesty.  Meanwhile do not miss the comments and links within the comments:

Latest on Immigration Disaster:

Of course, Democracy Now ! 

Under Hot Topics you will find Kavanaugh, Immigration, Climate Change...the works.


Local drug war events:

It looks as though we will actually be able to say the executions have slowed down this past month of September, the body count for TIJ is 190+ dead - which is less than previous months. YTD total killed just in TIJ=1,855. 

 However, it is always unclear if these lulls are due to the cartels reloading.  You might want to keep your eye out not only on local events, but National events where there have been huge clashes between the cartels and the authorities.

Stayed up until 5:00am trying to capture Daca Bob's girlfriend Suzie so we could take her into Dr. Silva's  for shots and to be fixed...otherwise I'm going to wind up with kittens.  Completely unsuccessful, will keep trying - but she really is a sweet little thing.
