Squall, Loreto – 16 September 2008

Weather!  I love September.  Bright hot days can give way on a whim to dark threatening clouds.  I was  spending a few precious moments in the sun before showering for my flight back to the states, when a squall-set powered in from the south.  Winds whipped the sea into a frothy soup of white dancing caps, as small boats on the out-islands ran for the safety of shore.

I was hoping that enough rain would fall that the airport runway would become a lake (this happens during heavy downpours), and that the plane would be canceled.  Unfortunately, the storm blew through in a hurry, the runway dried up, and it was fly home (sadly) back to the world of traffic, speedy everything, and work.
