Monday, 1/31/11, 8:00 a.m. Hooray!
The breeze has shifted back to the south; always good news
for we who like the warmth. However, you can see the forecast
is not that good for the week. Get your warm jackets out
folks as it's expected to dip pretty low for the next few
days. I still doubt very much if we would get any rain
or a freeze. .By Thursday or Friday it is supposed to warm
somewhat in time for our busy week-end:.. ....ST (yesterday's

we are going to get our share of cold weather next week.
I doubt very much if we would get into rain or a freeze.
That fog bank yesterday morning did spread across the waters
reaching for our beaches but cleared as the day wound down.
This morning the fog is again laying across the water to
Puerte Penasca and may again spread to our side. At this
moment we have quiet winds and water and we are still able
to be outside with only a sweater.. ....ST (yesterday's
Max69; Min 47F).
Saturday, 1/29/11, 8:00 a.m. The
forecast has changed a little. Today we have a SW breeze,
always warmer. We can expect cooler weather for most
of next week. However, high 60's and 70's are great compared
to the rest of the country. Once again a fog bank is visible
on the mainland across the Sea but clear skies are the picture
for the rest of us. Last night the stars seemed so
bright and close, even better if you stayed out of the city
lights. The gray whales are beginning to arrive in Baja. Many
of the tourists are taking advantage of vacationing on the
Pacific coast in February and early March to catch a glimpse
of nature this close. Others have headed up to Quartsite,
just across the border. I want to stay and see the Flamenco
Festival and it's 40 dancers on Feb 5, right here in San
Felipe.. ....ST (yesterday's Max74; Min 51F) .
Friday, 1/28/11, 8:00 a.m. Continuing
good weather statistics are expected thru tomorrow, but
look for high clouds and cooler temperatures Saturday thru
Monday. No matter! It will not be that much cooler. They
promise warm readings after Tuesday. We drove to Yuma yesterday
with great weather for travelling all the way. Can't say
as much for the trip. Just before Yuri Muri they are working
on the highway and we had to endure a terrible bypass mud
road for 5 miles. They are now taking up to 1/2 hour for
a thorough searth at the local checkpoint both incoming
and outgoing from San Felipe. Add that to the hour stop
going across the border and it all becomes an extensive
trip (timewise). Surprisingly they did not check at all
coming back into Algadones. Sorry; this does not have to
do with the weather which was daylight when we left before
5 a.m. and still light through 6:30 p.m . ....ST

identically the same as yesterday. Wednesday we had
2 or 3 windy periods and being from the north these were
on the cool side. Clear skies and calm waters remain, At
2:30 we have only a 3' tide, the lowest for the day. It's
great fishing weather. If the waters were warmer this
would be ideal. However, I would look to the desert for my
outings for the day. ....ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 54F)
Wednesday, 1/26/11, 8:00 a.m.
a mite cooler this morning we look again for a normal winter's
day in San Felipe. Clear skies, soft northern breezes and
quiet waters are with us already today. With nothing specific
on the calendar, it will just be quiet days, formally,
through the end of January. Of course there are many social
and group events, and it's a great time for a gathering
together of the locals and the snowbirds. Take advantage
of the forecast for 65-70 degree weather. Plan a
BBQ this week-end. ....ST (yesterday's Max66;

goodness our readings are getting back to normal. We can
undoubtedly look for 70 F+ today. There are soft
clouds drifting lazily across the otherwise blue expanse
over deeper blue waters, this morning lapping calmly in
low tides. Cool northern breezes keep the flag fluttering
steadily, not gusty as in the past few days. However we
can expect gusty winds off and on later this week. Over
all, they are forcasting warm weather through the week-end.
We notice that the earthquake readings have been more often,
but not above the 3.0 category as on last Saturday. We're
keeping a close eye on them. Check our home page and Kat's
for the forthcoming activity events listed today. ....ST

Monday, 1/24/11, 8:00 a.m.
Wow! Our readings have dropped
to a low of 48 degrees during the night, the humidity dropping to 10%. In
San Felipe this is low folks. But no wind tore at us during this period.
It has dropped completely. Undoubtedly the cold north wind made it so miserable
yesterday, but no breezes expected today. The sun may be able to bring
the thermometer readings back up to normal, meaning low 70's. Nevertheless,
I shall work inside today as there is nothing major on the calendar through
the end of the month. ....ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 48F)
Sunday, 1/23/11, 8:00 a.m. I
was awakened during the night with the winds tearing at the
limbs of our huge tree, surely tugging as strong as they
are right now, 16 mph on our wind measurer. And cold, yes,
because it is coming straight out of the north. The water
is showing only tiny whitecaps, but these may become stronger
throughout the day. Clear skies remain, which may allow the
sun to warm us up some, if you are directly in the rays.
Nothing major on the calendar this morning, so I think we'll
join up with some of our friends for an indoor dinner
this evening. ......ST (yesterday's Max71; Min 51F)
Saturday, 1/22/11, 8:00 a.m. Cold
enough to wear two layer of sweaters this morning, now about
10 degrees above the lowest temperature during the night.
The flag is limp in the absence of the northern breeze as
is the water at low tide. No matter, the sun is brilliant,
casting shadows everywhere. Yesterday after bathing our Llazo
Apso dog which has such long hair, he comfortably dried in
the warm rays of the sun. We expect it to warm up quickly
again today and through the weekend.. Let's start with a
stroll through San Felipe's Swap Meet this morning......ST
(yesterday's Max68; Min 53F)
Friday, 1/21/11, 8:00 a.m. Those
breezy northern winds have taken us back into winter, San
Felipe style. We are back into the 75F temperatures, down
into the low 50's at night. No matter: the water is slipping
quietly along the beach which is in low tide right now. The
week-end is upon us and it seems everyone has chosen their
favorite event. There is no lack of dining out or entertainment
including back-yard BBQ's and private beach parties. One
may choose to attend more than one in an evening. It looks
like it will stay in the mid-70's througout the weekend.

| Full moon 7 p.m.begging
for a picture
Thursday, 1/20/11, 8:00 a.m. While
eating dinner last evening we caught this perfect shot of
our beautiful full moon. You just can't get better than this.
Thursday morning it is back into the high 60's with that
cool northern breeze kicking up whitecaps on the water. We
expect this to stay with us through the week-end with highs
in the low 70's. ......ST (yesterday's Max80; Min 57F)

brag enough about the early spring weather we are having.
Everyone is out on the water, in the deserts, or preparing
a BBQ at home. We can expect more of the same today. Cooler
and breezier weather is expected Thursday. ......ST (yesterday's

is to rise with the birds early in the morning. It is surprising
what a different world you are in. Like today, we have mostly
clear skies with just this soft jet stream begging to be noticed. This
also creates an entirely different pallet of colors on the
water. The breeze is temperarily from the SE but will undoubtedly
swing back to the north.Today it is supposed to get into the
80's in Yuma, but here we have the soft breezes off of the
water modifying the temperatures slightly. What a great day
for the Rotary's "Taste of San Felipe" event. We
hope to see you there . ......ST (yesterday's Max78; Min

Aren't we lucky to have
such a beautiful morning to start the new week? Basically it is the
same today and maybe tormorrow as it was yesterday. Although winds are still
from the north they are also warm from the west. Soft clouds streak across
the clear, sunny skies and baby blue waters shimmer across the Sea. If you
look closely you can see Rock Consag about 25 miles out there. It just couldn't
get any better than this: in January, mind you. It promises to stay this
way through most of the week. It will be an excellent day for the Rotary's
Taste of San Felipe tomorrow. . ......ST (yesterday's Max 75; Min 60F

Who wants to stay inside
to watch football today when it is high in the 70's and maybe reaching the
80's?. With soft clouds above us and a warm, soft breeze from the west fanning
the water, the temperatures will reach their peak. Our new neighbour couldn't
have picked a better day to arrive in town. With the Arts and Crafts/Fashion
Show today and the Taste of San Felipe on Tuesday there is plenty of activity.
Optimisim is everywhere.. ......ST (yesterday's75; Min 60F
Saturday, 1/15/11, 8:00 a.m.
The thermometer finally reached over 75 F yesterday. We noticed
the night was much warmer leading into a terrrific week-end
as promised. Brilliantly clear skies make the water seem
a deep blue to the eye. We do have a soft, northern breeze
preventing it from becoming as warm as we would hope. Yesterday
the winds got strong enough to whip up the waves along the
shore, the frollicking type for doggies. We are looking forward
to a night out with the SF Saturday Singles, when we can
actually dress down for the occasion, not in coats and jackets.
And many will dress up for the Arts and Crafts Show at Rumors
on Sunday. We love the tropical weather. . ......ST (yesterday's

Friday, 1/14/11, 8:00 a.m.
Why did it dip down into the
cold last night? No matter, we are getting into the last few hours of windy
weather today and tonight. With high pressure the warmer weather is promised
into the week-end and indeed into next week. They have been promising temperatures
into the 70's for days but it has not reached past 67 here. High pressure
should continue to bring well above average temperatures for mid January
through next week. Great news for the Arts and Crafts Show at Rumors on Sunday.
Even greater news for the Taste of San Felipe affair by the Rotary next Tuesday.

We are basking in sunshine
here in San Felipe. It did not reach the 70's but today it may. It is easy
to rise 12 degrees in direct sunshine. A soft breeze fans the tree tops.
If only it were not from the north. We see our friends out riding their bykes
and conversing with their neighbors in warm shorts, mind you. This afternoon
we are looking forward to the Las Amigas Fashion show, always original with
local talent.and humor. . ......ST (yesterday's Max65F); Min 54F)

|Brilliant sun casts shadows on the dogs
Today we may see the temperatures
rise, above normal, into the 70's. Already the dogs are basking in the
warm sun. There is not a cloud to be seen, nor any wind to speak of. Yesterday
we noticed the water was churned up, almost to a mud color. But today it
has started out so peaceful and clear and beautiful. Utopia is expected
to last into the middle of next week. I feel for those who are still shovelling
sidewalks in the rest of the world. . ......ST (yesterday's Max66F;

winds drift from the north. With a cloudless sky the sun
is out in full force. Already the dogs are lazing in it's
warmth and I shall definitely find a chore outside to see
if I too, can get a bit of vitamin C. We are seeing a few
more gringos arriving now that the holidays are behind
us. Excellent weather is on hand to welcome them. On Thursday
we are looking forward to the Las Amigas Fashion show,
always original with local talent. Knowing that the profits
help to build up their Student Grants program everybody
turns out to help make each year the best ever. . ......ST

It's the beginning of a
new week. We have the cold winds from the north to contend with once again.
Heavy clouds lie off to the East but plenty of sunshine spreads over San
Felipe itself. Expect clouds and overcast through Tuesday but warming
temperature overall. I had reason to put my hands in the Sea water the
other day and found it to be surprisingly warm. It's the frigid winds you
get when you come out of a swim that is shocking. Many fishermen wear wet
suits for the warmth. On the other hand some Canadians live in shorts all
winter. It sure beats the weather they left up home. . . . . ......ST

Sunday, 9 Jan 2011,
The winds have swung back
to the north which are always cold. However
yesterday's readings with SW winds were encouraging. Clear
skies in our areas allow the sun for much
of the day. One person actually got
a little sunburn yesterday working on the
roof. The fishermen also stay covered
to prevent direct sunburn. Maybe it's a good
day to take the buggies out into the desert
to gather many of the fossles, limestones
and azure rocks as well as enjoying the first
touch of Spring fauna that is just now pushing
up their heads. Do you know we have
birds laying the first round of eggs and
dutifully tending them daily? . . . . ......ST

sky is clear and the winds and water are calm.
When the temperature hits the 60's we are happy.
And it looks like it is going to be warm for
the next week. It is a great time to come to
San Felipe for a winter holiday. The town is
not bustling with people like we had hoped, although
that has an advantage. We are enjoying the chance
to re-organize after the Christmas and New Years
holidays and there is a positive attitude as
we go forward with our new Mayor of Mexicalli
and his appointed Delegado here in San Felipe.

little or no clouds, today has started out a little
warmer by just a few degrees. Most of the moisture
remains north of the border. While writing this
report the thermometer has gone up to 60F already
and we are dry. Winds and water are completely
calm. It's going to be a great day.. . . . ......ST

de Reyes, Day of Kings. It's just a tad bit warmer
this morning with a beautiful cloud cover. This is
not to say it is overcast. Instead this beautiful
sunruse will disappear in a matter of minutes. Although
still in the 50's if you are sheltered from the north
breezes the warmth will win. We expect it to stay
cool at least a few more days. . . . ......ST

|Clouds make for beautiful sunrises.
light cloud covers the entire area this morning although
the sun is trying vainly to cut through. A soft,
chilly breese encourages one to huddle closer to
the heat. Some hardy souls along the road have built
a tiny fire while waiting for others to come and
share their ride for the day. We do not expect it
to warm up at least till tomorrow. . . ......ST

still cold, clear and beautiful out there, it seems
to have turned the corner, at least for a few days.
Some of my friends were sitting around in shorts
yesterday sheltered from the wind and enjoying a
warm sun. However winds have returned to the north.
Any signs of clouds usually disappear by noon. We
expect to see a fresh run on shrimp to fill up the
larders from the popular holiday runs so the fishermen
should be kept busy. As for the full calendar this
week we have the San Felipe ARP meeting Wednesday
and the The Las Amigas Discover Baja Nature Walk
Friday and Saturday. The public is invited. . ......ST

8:00 a.m. The first working day of
a new decade. We have a tentative promise of
warmer weather by mid-week. South winds and
calm waters are pretty good indicators of a
great start. Most of the working class will
be back on the job and the rest will be trying
to figure out new ways to restructure the same
old projects. The Las Amigas Discover Baja
Nature Walk should have a good week for their
project which is something new on our calendar.

It's getting hard to keep up a good front. I
promise myself I shall definitely drag out my
fur coat ifit goes any lower. They have promised
a slow warming trend to start today, but they
didn't say how long it may last. So it will remain
a clear, cold, but calm Sunday, a good day to
stay in and watch football. ......ST (yesterday's

New Year's Day 1/1/11
Saturday, 1 Jan 2011,
8:00 a.m. I haven't seen it so cold
for years. However, we cannot complain. 57F
is still springtime weather in most of the
U.S. If it wasn't for that cold north wind,
we could celebrate the New Year exhuberently.
We had a great camp party last evening, warming
up the lodge room with a hot fire in the fireplace,
something we haven't used for two years. This
morning it is beautifully clear, crisp and
cold. But if it gets close to the 60's we will
probably BBQ supper outside, however maybe
not eating on the patio. Somewhat milder, dry
air will return by tomorrow, yet still below
normal. I think our guests must have brought
this freeze from their homes. Happy New Year
everyone. ......ST (yesterday's Max57F;
