Sitting in Marina Chiapas isn’t the end of the world.
But we're adjusting our attitudes.
We wanted to head north and west and the weather won’t let us.

A second named storm has reared its ugly head since we arrived here on May 11th. And we thought we were being so smart by scooting back into southern Mexico a tad early – just before hurricane season.
On other years, we would have been correct.
But - not this year.
From the National Hurricane Center:
"WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF BUD...THIS IS THE EARLIEST DATE ON RECORD FOR THE SECOND TROPICAL STORM FORMATION IN THE EAST PACIFIC. IT SURPASSES THE PREVIOUS EARLIEST DATE OF MAY 29."
Yes, ‘Bud’ is its name. That happens to be the name of my favorite uncle on my father’s side of the family, so how bad can it really be?
Hotspur is in no danger at all. We are thankfully south of all the action. Good ole' 'Bud' just happens to be in our way. Track Bud's path here on Facebook if you want.
