The Big Chill
A cold front from the north and a few days of rain put a chill on activities in La Manzanilla last weekend. Baseball, soccer, and polo games were cancelled. The flea market extravaganza in the plaza was rescheduled for this Sunday, the 19th. Wind gusts as the front moved in toppled trees and sent unsecured roofs flying, yet our electricity never so much as flickered, a miracle unto itself. Our usual “clear blue and 82” February temperatures plummeted to the 60s and low 70s, sending us year-‘round-resident weather wimps scrambling for hoodies and long pants, much to the amusement of vacationers who still found the weather balmy and better than what they’d left behind.
