rain and cool weather

Do you think the rain and cool weather have arrived a month or so early? We never complain about rain here but it is unusual. Remember last May was a humdinger for San Miguel... new records for high temperatures. It was 56 at 8AM this morning in the center of SMA. Wonderful fresh air!!

Enough of your mantra that May is the hottest month! Weather changes, and it has obviously from past experience over my ten years here. So, I offer the following challenge--I throw down the gaunlet, so to speak. For every day it reaches over 100 in the month of May in San Miguel, I will eat a Habanero Chile. By the recognized Scovill Standards, it is judged the very hottest chile. For every day it rains, you will eat one of the same. The eat-off, as it were, will occur after the official records are validated and I suggest that the local AM radio station and their statistics be the standard. Do you accept?

Milagro! Now, do you accept the challenge? By the way, I did err when I said that the Haberneo was the hottest chile. Actually, the Yellow Scotch Bonnet is, but then, 26,000 S.U., who would want to deal with that? We'll take what we can get here, so do you or do you not want to accept my challenge? If not, then back off you constant claim that May is the hottest month. Clearly, this year, so far, it is not.

I read the word "nope" in Carol's post and assumed that was her reply to your challenge - was I wrong?

In the interest of accuracy

26,00 Scoville units is a chile de arbol. A Red Savina Habañero, at 350,000 to 550,000 Scoville units, has now beat the Scotch Bonnet's record.

Now, please lay off Carol, and learn how to take "no" for an answer.

No, but I missed it totally, and that is why I renewed my challenge. But apparently there will be no contest. Unfoturnate, because it was to end in a fiesta with me serving my world famous Nachos. Did anyone think either one of us would really eat the hottest peppers around, whatever they are called? Apparently someone else didn't get the joke and thought I was picking on poor Carol. So much more is the pity. No party now, no soup for you.

Well, I snuck into San Miguel de Allende this week, just for the purpose of renewing my passport and taking one of the pups to our favorite vet in your town. And rain it did during Wednesday evening. My take was that San Miguel de Allende seemed much hotter than Morelia.

I'll be back up there in about three weeks to pick up my passport and take Beto to the vet.
