Battered hardly

The storm is over.
In the end it moved that far south of the peninsula that its impact was moderate.
There was rain for over 24 hours but not pouring.
And only in the night strong winds but no tree had to worry about them.

So, what was originally announced as a hurricane of the highest category and the second strongest ever, weakened tremendously into simply some cloudy, windy and rainy weather.
The Fuso Szulc bravely even remained in the dry river bed where never flowing rainwater was seen.

Nevertheless, these hurricanes and storms have to be taken seriously.
They are like a ticket in a life and death lottery.
A depression can weaken but also can get stronger.
It can bring hard needed rainwater or it can bring destruction.
One must be very on the alert and watch the progress of these depressions closely.
Better to be serious about them than frivolous.
Like this guy in San José del Cabo, the nearest town.
He went swimming in the Sea of Cortez liking the huge waves a lot.
His funeral is next week.

Now everything is settled to enjoy a beautiful four weeks at Punta Boca del Salado, Baja California, Mexico.
With the Gonzales family.
Having peace, harmony and time to prepare precisely the coming European tour.
And the launching and PR of the new book "Sequences: the ultimate selection".

The sun is shining again.
