Hurricane Henriette

Hurricane Henriette
Henriette has been upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane and we are now under a hurricane watch. A hurricane watch means that we could expect to experience hurricane conditions within the next 36 hrs.


The following is taken from Accu Weather.com.
A HURRICANE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE EAST COAST OF THE BAJA
PENINSULA FROM LORETO NORTHWARD TO MULEGE. A HURRICANE WATCH IS
ALSO IN EFFECT FOR THE COAST OF MAINLAND MEXICO FROM ALTATA
NORTHWARD TO GUAYMAS. A HURRICANE WATCH MEANS THAT HURRICANE
CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE WITHIN THE WATCH AREA...GENERALLY WITHIN 36
HOURS
This is a current picture of the projected track, we are approximately where the little white star is.


Today we will be bringing in all the things/plants off of the patio. We were going to wait until tomorrow; but decided to do it while everything is still dry and it is not so windy. We will also be putting masking tape on our windows.
We asked our landlord and he said that no one here covers up their windows. They just put masking tape on them. He said that the way the mountains surround us that we are quite protected and the winds are not as bad here as they are in San Carlos. I am not sure if the people in San Carlos board up their windows, have or use hurricane shutters or not. I would be more concerned if we lived out there. He told us that the last time a storm came through here they did not even lose their electricity. It went off and on momentarily because of trees hitting the lines; but did not go out completely. That sounded good.
Well time to get busy and do some stuff.
