Did anyone see the Water Spout on Lake Chapala this AM between 9 to 10 AM?

How do I post a picture?

So, you want to wear the weatherman's hat as well, ok, pm me and I'll be glad to turn it over to you, in the mean time maybe we'll do a little premarketing for your newly found expertise, I'll just blank out the weather page and post folks to call you direct, how does that sound to you?

Reports from several people in Riberas, on chapala.com, were of a small amount of rain. Because there was a lot in the Ajijic area, doesn't mean that Riberas had the same.

John - please watch your language and be a little less "know it all" - it will make for a happier relationship with other posters.

Ok John, it's all yours, Max and I are going to begin our search for something else to do, gosh knows there must be something out there that doesn't require much expertise.

Thanks folks

Thank you, Bournemouth. I think you've politely said what most others feel.

Seems that John is looking to get himself booted from this forum, too. Doesn't the man ever learn from past mistakes?

Steve - thank you for your work. It's appreciated by many.

Good morning John, et al,

I joined MexConnect this morning so I could personally respond to you re: the inappropriate comments to Steve, who has run the very professional Lake Chapala Weather Net. I don't know you but after reading the comments of others, sounds like you are not the professional you may profess to be.

Steve, for us at the WestEnd, we so appreciate your work and dedication and hope you will move past this unfortuante experience and again provide the wonderful weather information you have in the past.

Please do not let one person spoil it for you and the rest of us that apprecaite your great work!

Regards, Dru Davies
West End of Lake Chapala

Even though we don't live in the Chapala/Ajijic area, we do follow the weather reports there daily via Steve's great website.
Thanks for the hard work done to produce such an informative site!! I wish other locations had something so informative.

Ditto.
And then some. The weather from one end of Lakeside to the other has wild variations in rainfall.

Several people I know did see the waterspout on the lake. I was wondering about the proper dimensions for an ark during the downpour.

I don't see that as it appears to be the OP at the beginning of this thread.

Steve is a personal friend and I do know just how much effort he puts forth attempting to maintain some semblance of accuracy to his site in spite of interruptions in data transmission brought on by CFE outages, wind damaged instruments, computer hiccups, etc. Personally, I would never have the patience nor fortitude to go through all that he has gone through over the past four years to say nothing of the monetary investment for the original system and various replacement parts. Because of these efforts and dedication, we all have it easy since all we have to do is go to a link and there we have the best available information on the weather at Lake Chapala!

Steve - I apologize for my language. It was out of line on a public forum. I', sorry to see the weather station shut down as I have used it 3 or 4 times a day and found it very informative. I hope you'll reconsider a restart.

Steve: I dropped by the hole in one, twice today thinking you might be there in an effort to try to bribe you with a drink to get you to come back
