Hope you all are well prepared & will be safe!

White caps in the pool? We've been in Barra de Navidad since Saturday. So far it isn't any windier than yesterday and still coming from the north which is the opposite direction Beatriz will be blowing. The surf is pretty small and it hasn't rained at all. Be nice to get some rain.

Well I decided not to head to Barra for Pizza because it was the kind of rain you can't see thru. Agreed it only lasted 10 minutes. You should know rain changes dramatically in a few 100 yards here

More impressive than it has been so far. A little rain and some light wind gusts is about all we've had up to now.. No killer storm surf.

From Comala:

A few heavy, short lived showers yesterday evening & then it settled into a nice light, but steady rain. It rained all night & is still going on lightly today. The sky is a solid gray.....no wind at all - thus far & by now, I would guess we won't get any.

21 June 2011 Last updated at 10:58 ET Hurricane Beatriz lashes Pacific resorts in Mexico Surf's up: Waves whipped up by Beatriz sweep a car out to sea in Acalpulco
Hurricane Beatriz is threatening some of Mexico's most popular resorts, leaving tourists sheltering in their hotels.
The Pacific ports of Acapulco, Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo are closed.
The US National Hurricane Center said winds rose to 150km/h (90mph), with the storm moving over the coast.

Early on Tuesday, Beatriz was located about 20km (15 miles) south-east of La Fortuna and 80km (50 miles) west-northwest of Manzanillo, moving northwest at about 20 km/h (13mph).

You can't even agree with sparks who is across the street, so how can you agree with a reporter over 400 miles away in Acapulco.

The pizza place was closed, Scott. What's up with most eateries being closed in Barra on Mondays? We ended up eating at Tinto del Mar. And it rained the whole time we were there. And all night. And on and off all day yesterday.
