Low Clouds

We had quite a bit of rain the other night. We seem to have plugged the major leaks with the roof sealer and only found one leak. Unfortunately, that leak is in a new location. Crap. Well, I wasn't done with the roof anyway. Now I just have to wait for a few dry days.

The clouds hung low over the mountains for the better part of yesterday. We couldn't see any peaks. We had a brief period of mugginess but it blew off with new winds coming across the lake. The Pemex station in the first photograph is on the street behind our house and halfway down the block. God, I love the GREEN mountains and those wispy clouds. The second photograph, also taken yesterday, is looking uphill from the edge of the lake. The shot didn't capture the incline of the street going up the hill to the town square. Trust me, Ajijic is no San Fransisco, but it is plenty hilly. Some streets are steep.

I am continually amazed and grateful for the opportunity to live near the clouds. I think that I have adjusted pretty well to the altitude and climate. I am certain that come winter I'll need a sweater or a jacket sometimes. We won't be laughing at the acclimatized anymore. We'll be just like them...

I asked the doctor to take my blood pressure yesterday. It was 130 / 80. Not bad for an old guy. I'm maintaining my weight loss and hope to drop some more. Yep, all is right in my world.
