humid is the word...


Drove up to the mountain to take a bunch of local kids for morning hike in the canyon to see all the water and there is a new heavy duty locked gate there.    

anyone know if we can get access to this?    I drove over to the arroyo part that was not fenced in but with kids in tow and never driven it I could not risk driving the arroyo and getting stuck.  My truck is heavy diesel 4x4 so not ideal and my tires are road ones so just could not risk it.   Anyone know if you can get to it that way, there was no fence in the arroyo section as that is a federal arroyo i guess.    The other sections had visible new fences.   Some were destroyed by the recent storm.


6:20 pm, so took kids to lapaz movie time. the road on the lapaz side has some major pot hole areas again.

a few more campers in the campground.

moths out in force.   weeds coming up in volume.  still no bo-bos.   dragonflies out in force.

we had a little rain from one cloud that went by, maybe 1/16th of an inch yesterday.  

I am heading out to the hot springs area today as someone posted on facebook a huge opening in the ground of a super hot pool, looked to be over 50 meters long by 1 meter wide.   not deep but does not need to be.

there appears to be the first camper in the campground.

afternoon, there are now 4 campers here.    morning weather is not bad right now as long as you have shade.   Still humid.

measured the hot springs exposed water is 135 degrees.

all it needs is a cover that is a good fit. Or it can be an incredible source for breeding mosquitos.

We only have one kind of mosquito in this area currently. That is the one that can carry dengue. Recently there was a team with an Entomologist from Australia, from Monash University | Institute of Vector-Borne Disease evaluating our situation to determine if we were a good candidate for Wolbachia mosquito treatment. They stopped by my place to gather samples and reported back to me what I had already determined they were all Aedes Aegypti in my traps. I knew this because of the flying and biting patterns they have. and common sense that there are only two mosquito species that carry dengue and we get dengue here.

This mosquito is also known for being able to breed in a soda bottle capful of water.

My neighbour's son now waters my trees and he has put an open rotoplas into my yard. Mostly it's refilled either by rain water or by the line. Is this dangerous for dengue? It's very usefull to me, right now.

I do not expect any dengue outbreak at the moment.    Till this storm LaPaz had zero days of rain over the majority, plus LaPaz really did not get that much rain..     I now have a MD friend in LaPaz who during the week is a brain surgeon and weekends is an ER doctor at the big hospital in LaPaz.       He is doing independent testing of my mosquito traps for me.    

He has said that in the bad dengue years when he is working as a ER doctor 70% of the patients he sees are dengue related.   He still has not had one case of dengue he said this year.    Right now because he is doing my testing he even goes to the department in charge of monitoring it.    There have been no cases and this is late in the year for anything to go epidemic easily.      I put our chances at less than 5%.   Where last year with the storm rains we could have gone epidemic because there were many cases in lapaz, and dengue made it to the mountain ranches near us last year.  

So go ahead and make plans for early arrival to LaVentana.  If things change I will report them.

the flying bugs are out in force where you leave a light on.

a few small tarantulas about the size of a half dollar on the sidewalks that I have never seen before. saw 3 in a mile walk one way. Never seen them before.

Still no bobos.

next everyone have your properties inspected for containers with water and have them emptied, we do not want a bad mosquito season.     Do not be a part of the problem.     The present likelihood of a dengue outbreak is low because LaPaz did not get a lot of rain so tough for it to become an epidemic but because cabo did get massive rain and flooding it can become an epidemic there and spread out this way.    

Make sure you bring down mineral oil it is sold on Amazon even in bulk gallons.     Just a little in an outdoor toilet or other fixed location that would gather water.   Even for a pool.  Just a tablespoon in a pool stops the larvae from breeding.    and mineral oil does not harm humans, they use it in facial lotions.  



And anyone who wants to make their own mosquito traps all you need is containers, I find the 5 gallon water jugs with the screw on tops work best.     We can set a date to put them together as I need assistance in making them.    And any donations for the materials can be made on my website mosquito traps  under donations I take paypal visa and so on.    I have all the materials except bottles for us to make these.    An update is I have a MD in LaPaz that has tested the trap and has found larvae and he has also tested traps with mosquitos and witnessed that the mosquito can not escape to the 95% plus.  So independent testing is complete, next to find funds to pay a lab to do the same.     I am still looking for funding to take it to a larger scale.  

Here is a flyer I made after the dengue breakout about 15 years ago.    It is in spanish and english.

San Jose had some flooding from the storm approaching. random blotches. We had no clouds and no rain.

The road to Lapaz on the LaPaz side is in bad shape. Some nice big pot holes. If we get major rain it will really be in bad shape. Once you get to the new section at the top all is good, they have even done some edge work to help keep it in good shape from the rains.

Same in this town they are still working on some edge areas that need shoring up. They have been doing this with one crew for several months now.

last evening was also horrible humidity wise.... This morning hunidity has moved to the ok level. Temp is back to normal for morning 83.

Here is an interesting one, says you can receive and pay bills from telmex and CFE.

http://simplepay.com.mx/?utm_medium=SLH%20To%20SP%20Article&utm_source=SLH&utm_campaign=6%20Apps%20Life%20Easier

A great tool that we came across is SimplePay. If you also think paying Mexico bills is inconvenient, you're not alone! Frequently, the bills in Mexico arrive late (or they never do); then you need to go across town to pay your electric or water bill before they shut-you-off.

For all of us that have experienced this hassle, SimplePay offers the perfect solution. SimplePay centralizes all of your Mexico bills in one place (electricity, water, phone, internet, property taxes, HOA fees, etc) - then, when your bill is due, SimplePay sends you a notification to your email with an easy Pay-Now button.

We surveyed thousands of foreigners who own or rent a home in Mexico, and most of them spend 6+ months out of Mexico. This is why SimplePay is so convenient. You can finally keep on top of your Mexico bills, without having to pre-pay the whole year in advance or ask friends for favors. Click here to view

I have someone who tried to pay CFE online with a US or Canadian credit card, My bill is paid so I can not try.

But you probably need to have an internet account, so create one. I recently created a second one for a second meter I have. I had a huge problem, it would not allow it.

I will post how I did it on the CFE section...

another beautiful day not humid, last night with low humidity it was nice to walk without breaking a sweat.


now at 11:30 it is humid, a storm is pushing up the mainland and just gave us a 10 minute or so period of 10-20 mph gusts. temp 86 but humid and overcast.  No rain here yet but the mountains are looking like they are getting rain.

hot day but not humid.... 93 degrees which at noon is hot for here. But as I mention not humid. So very pleasant day so far.

Went to the cabo water park yesterday with the kids. They opened late because of some issue with the government, but only 6 cars entering so the kids virtually had the park to themselves, and even late in the day never had to wait in a line for a slide. Roads all on good condition took the Barriles way down and todos way on the back. Definitely, take the toll road around cabo the main area lights. Near and past the Sorrienas mall in Cabo in a few trafic lights had to wait 3-4 light changes. So even in cabo itself after coming from COSTCO it is worth getting on the toll road IMHO, I think the toll is 16 pesos to do that short distance, but it was 20-30 minutes of time which would have been maybe 5-10.

after I posted no rains in the mountains the next day there was the rains in the mountains... and every three days there after.

I am concerned, this is the first year the clouds are not up in the mountains dropping rain every couple days.    this could have devastating impacts on the water aquifer in the coming years.     I remember something about vegas that it takes 7 years before the water in the mountains makes it down to the town.     Now that is a much greater distance so wonder when we feel the effects?  

also city water back to high ppm.

and very humid year again...

we have been having city water problems for the last week. Unconfirmed the pump had problems. but have had a few days without water, so you see the water trucks in action delivering water to many.

The last couple days when there is water the ppm measurement has been at 320ppm. So maybe they are mixing in the los planes water to a high degree. It has been a long time but i thought los planes water was under 100ppm.

http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/border-baja-california/sd-me-san-ysidro-vehcles-20170717-story.html

Carmageddon at the border? A 57-hour closure planned for southbound car lanes at San Ysidro.

Attention border crossers: For 57 hours in September, all cars will be barred from entering Tijuana through San Ysidro.

Lasting from Sept. 23 at 3 a.m. until noon on Sept. 25, the closure is part of a plan by the U.S. General Services Administration to realign a portion of Interstate 5. The operation launches the third and final phase of the $741 million expansion of the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

The closure will affect tens of thousands of drivers--students, commuters, shoppers and others who regularly travel between San Ysidro and Tijuana, passing through the busiest border crossing in the Western Hemisphere.

Authorities are comparing the operation to Carmageddon, when a large swath of the busy Los Angeles I-405 Freeway was shut down for a weekend in 2011 for a highway expansion project.

In this case, the partial closure of I-5 at San Ysidro will cause all vehicle traffic crossing into Mexico during that period to be rerouted to Otay Mesa, where Mexico has only five inspection lanes.

“If you have to cross that weekend, plan on delays,” said Anthony Kleppe, a senior asset manager with the GSA.

At a forum hosted Monday by the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce and the South County Economic Development Council, Kleppe announced key dates for the massive project, which entails re-building the southernmost stretch of I-5 as it leads into Tijuana’s El Chaparral Port of Entry.

The project is scheduled for completion in June 2019, Kleppe told a crowd of several dozen residents, business owners, and government officials from both sides of the border gathered at the Las Americas outlet mall in San Ysidro.

The aim is to double the number of southbound lanes that feed into El Chaparral from five to ten. It will also involve adding eight more northbound inspection lanes at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, bringing the total to 33. In addition, plans call for southbound vehicle inspection booths to be operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspectors, and a secondary inspection area.

During the construction period, the northbound flow of vehicular traffic will not be affected, Kleppe said. Nor will the pedestrian crossings in both directions.

The 57-hour closure of the southbound vehicle lanes is necessary for the safe removal of a large steel and canvas canopy that currently covers a portion of the southbound car lanes, according to GSA. During that time, workers will also remove concrete crash barriers, and install infrastructure and temporary paving and striping.

“We start with a bang,” Kleppe said.

Following the closure, southbound lanes will be reduced from five to three for a two-month period. After that the plan calls for adding a fourth lane before Thanksgiving, and softening the current sharp 110-degree turn toward El Chaparral to 90 degrees. “It has a better curve, even though there are fewer lanes,” Kleppe said. GSA expects that as a result of the gentler curve, the flow of traffic will not change significantly from what it is today, despite the reduction in lanes.

Monday’s presentation was seen as the launching of an effort to get out the word about the closure and lane reductions. “As the message continues to go out, people are going to be able to plan their trips better,” said Efrain Ibarra, assistant director of the South County Economic Development Council.

“We hope to turn this into a positive,” said Jason Wells, executive director of the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce, where the fear is that a drop in traffic could mean loss of business.

Plans to hold a festival during the closure and promote pedestrian crossings “can make this an economic boost for us down here,” Wells said.

Almost every town starting with La Paz and ending up in Guerrero Negro had people pulled over and many more patrolling, probably 25 Federal Police sometimes 2-3 waiting in one spot with radar. Also saw approximately 100-150 Marines in buses headed north out of La Paz, good to see them! Drive slower, be safe and watch out.

another pour today as pictured below in Laventana.    This should complete the pouring of the foundation part.  pouring about the same distance/length. Next they will be pouring some cement to fill between the wall and the road.

Plus we now have those white cement road markers about 2 feet tall on the side of the road all over town. Some in a few inconvenient locations that will be run over or removed.

As far as the mountain they are also doing this similar road edge maintenance and preventative maintenance. A lot of it at the top where it is curvy and hilly.

And we now have garbage pick up 2 times a week.

CFE to invest $1 billion USD to connect BCS to mainland power grid

The Federal Electricity Commission will invest about one billion dollars for the installation of an underwater cable system that will cross the Sea of ​​Cortez, connecting Baja California Sur to the mainland power grid. The project will be started later this year and be operating by 2021, according to Jaime Hernández Martínez, CEO of the Federal Copmmison of Electricity (CFE). He made the announcement today to the governor of Baja California Sur, Carlos Mendoza Davis, saying that "once the underwater cable system is operating, it will reduce the cost of power generation, improve the entity's competitiveness and the quality of the power transmissions in addition to making the service more reliable."

Along with the underwater power transmission cable, a 32-pair line of optical fiber will be also installed in addition to other projects like photovoltaic plants (solar), allowing additional power produced to be shared on the grid throughout the Mexican Republic. This underwater cable system submarine interconnection was considered "the best option for the entity, in order to guarantee a better quality energy service, more competitive prices and is environmentally friendly", said Hernández Martínez..

"We will comply with all environmental requirements that, far from damaging the environment will be contribute to better ecofriendly development in the state, built around clean energy sources. One of the advantages of this project is that it opens the door to the development of new clean and renewable power generation plants, including both solar and wind power".

Regarding the current power plants, Hernández Martínez said they will become "backup centers" to be used in periods of high demand in extreme temperatures or weather phenomena. That ensures a robust system and with sufficient capacity to meet the demand when needed.

not sure why the same named thread is locked and this one appeared.    

But here is a picture a few minutes ago of the work being done to fix the erosion issues that occurred the past couple years to prevent them from getting worse.
