It is Thursday morning and has been pouring all morning in the Ajijic area. There is some serious street flooding as I found out while getting to Chapala earlier.
The lake is rising rapidly and, since we are only three structures up from the lake, we do feel somewhat vulnerable. If we have another rainy season like these last two, I don't see how extensive flooding can be avoided. Our gardener is in his late 60s, has lived in Ajijic his whole life and has worked this same garden for about 35 years. He's never seen the water reach this property but it has come mighty close.
Somebody should have a serious talk with the Huichols and the Virgin of Zapopan and let them know that, while we appreciate their help, too much of a good thing is a bad thing.
