Rains, ‘Canes and Crabs

June begins the hurricane season here in Mexico, so we’ll keep you connected to the latest reports from NOAA on the Pacific Storms. San Pancho hasn’t had a serious threat from a hurricane in a decade or so. Let’s hope that pattern continues. The official season runs from June 1 to November 30.

This time of year also brings the invasion of the crabs as they head to sea. Usually through the yards and homes of those living near the beach. My friend says they were first spotted on May 25th this year. Spotted is an understatement since her steps are a throbbing mass of cranky crabs.

June also marks the beginning of the rainy season, usually in the last half of the month. See previous posts for more details. But true to form, we didn’t have rain in May.

Daytime high temperatures for May hovered in the mid to high 80s. Nightime lows started in the mid 60s and rose to the mid 70s toward the end of the month. The high for the month was 89 on the 15th and the average humidity for May was 78%. Summer is on the way!

So we can expect rain, crabs and a renewed jungle, but no hurricanes. But you never know.

The jungle gets even greener and more lush as mother nature gives the plants, trees and our pueblo a good wash. Let’s hope that she doesn’t get carried away with another record rainfall amount like last year.
