Question of the day: Does God love me for some unexplained reason and blessed me with a wonderful wife - OR - Did God bless me with a wonderful wife and, therefore, has learned to love me for her sake?
We're arriving June 23rd. Weather forecast show rain, all day, every day for the whole week. Has anyone heard anything?
Technically, I believe it's a monsoon; at least that's what a couple of sites have called it. When I was there from May 11-23, for 8 of those 12 days it was cloudy and occasionally rainy. At the time there was a named storm in the Pacific off the cost of Costa Rica and another off the US east coast, and a band of rain that started at the Pacific storm and stretched across Mexico, right up the Yucatan (over us on Cozumel), the length of Cuba, across Florida, all the way to the Atlantic storm. The named storms are long gone, but that band of rain smack on top of the Yucatan is still there. It's very unusual; May is usually pretty dry. I've been to Cozumel for the last 20+ years in May and not seen this much rain there, ever.
But even with the rain, we had a great time. It affects the diving almost not at all, and for the fishing it was actually a bit of a relief. Those still, sunny days out on the water for 8-9 hours can get blisteringly hot.

For days, haven't been able to stop thinking about my Cozumel trip this Sunday and when I get to work this morning, the alert on CNN.com is "Hurricane Carlotta bound for Mexico." I thought, "You gotta be sh$*ttin me!" Luckily its on the Pacific side and heading west (fingers crossed). Hopefully though its close enough to drain the atmospheric energy needed to fuel another one on the Atlantic side, for the next week or so at least.
