More of the same / Más de lo mismo

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

Yesterday was mostly sunny and the winds were simply a strong breeze. There was another amber weather warning for the coast again today and it was justified. The probability of rain was below 25 percent. But, since the rain started this morning, the probability has gone up to 95 percent. Interesting how that works.

I’m not much in the mood for a bundled-up walk to the gym in the rain and wind. So, I’m going to work out at home and do some organizing. I put family photos on the bedroom walls a while back and I’d like to rearrange and switch some out with what I have stored under the bed in plastic tubs. The plants need some tender-loving care, too.

Since the wind wasn’t raging yesterday morning before Isabel arrived to clean, I opened the front glass curtain (9 panels) and quickly squeegeed the damp windows. They had become so clouded with salt, sand, and dust that the sun couldn’t even break through. Dudo immediately went outside to soak up some sun. He and Moose are kind of sick of the gloom (and noise). The new-this-year flag across the street is in tatters. At least the ranunculus have brought some sunshine into the apartment.

The weather is supposed to be significantly improved tomorrow. SG’s cousins will arrive in the early morning and we’ve got things to do while they’re here. Córdoba, Sevilla, and much more. The only thing that demands good weather is Caminito del Rey about an hour from us. It’s “a walkway pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge.” I’ve included a photo from the web of one section so you can get an idea of what lies in store. It will be closed if the weather makes it unsafe. I hope it doesn’t rain on our parade.


Ayer estuvo mayormente soleado y los vientos eran simplemente una fuerte brisa. Pero hoy hubo otra advertencia meteorológica ámbar para la costa nuevamente y estaba justificada. La probabilidad de lluvia estaba por debajo del 25 por ciento, pero desde que comenzó la lluvia, la probabilidad ha subido al 95 por ciento. Interesante cómo funciona eso.

No estoy de humor para caminar envuelto al gimnasio bajo la lluvia y el viento. Entonces, voy a hacer ejercicio en casa y organizarme un poco. Puse fotos familiares en las paredes del dormitorio hace un tiempo y me gustaría reorganizar y cambiar algunas con lo que he guardado debajo de la cama en recipientes de plástico. Las plantas también necesitan un cuidado tierno y amoroso.

Como ayer por la mañana no soplaba viento antes de que Isabel llegara a limpiar, abrí la cortina de vidrio frontal (9 paneles) y rápidamente limpié las ventanas húmedas. Se habían vuelto tan nublados con sal, arena y polvo que el sol ni siquiera podía atravesarlos. Dudo inmediatamente salió a tomar el sol. Él y Moose están un poco hartos de la penumbra (y el ruido). La bandera nueva de este año al otro lado de la calle está hecha jirones. Al menos los ranúnculos han traído algo de sol al apartamento.

Se supone que el clima mejorará significativamente mañana. Los primos de SG llegarán temprano en la mañana y tenemos cosas que hacer mientras están aquí. Córdoba, Sevilla y mucho más. Lo único que exige buen tiempo es Caminito del Rey a una hora de nosotros. Es “una pasarela anclada a lo largo de las paredes empinadas de un desfiladero estrecho. He incluido una foto de la web de una sección para que puedas hacerte una idea de lo que hay en la tienda. Se cerrará si el clima lo hace inseguro. Espero que no llueva en nuestro desfile.

  1. Looks like Dudo is ready to POUNCE in that top photo!
    The wind there doesn’t seem to want to stop. Hope it dies down before family arrives.

    1. Jim:
      Nah, that was Dudo thinking “Am I gonna have to move?” This many days of wind and gray is very unusual.

      You got me wondering. I searched on these flags and found many rated heavy duty for bad weather. They range in price from 12.99 to 500 something. Hmmm.

    1. Jon:
      I’ve watched so many of those old videos. Terrifying. But I hope we get to do it next week. The redone version looks amazing to me. The weather has to cooperate though.

    1. Kelly:
      San Geraldo is driving us there and will hike down below. There’s no way he’ll go up there.

  2. Good morning from my world– I’m excited for you and Jerry to have his cousins visiting, knowing that they must be there by now.
    Glad you got the glass curtains squeegeed…. yikes! Have fun!

      The had tight connections. First had to sprint to make their flight at JFK. Then missed their connection in Madrid and had to wait another 4 hours for the next flight. But they made it and we go to Córdoba for the day tomorrow! The winds blew last night and this morning and the glass curtain is looking pretty sad again.
