Cabo Update

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Here is a note from my friend Yolanda who lives in Cabo, nearly two weeks after Hurricane Odile.

Hi David!
Just a little update on Cabo:
Very slowly Cabo has started to recover both physically and emotionally although a drive through the main avenues downtown and on the road to San Jose are a constant reminder of what we lived through. Telcel’s offices are totaled and so are many other places. You can see temporary tents posted on the parking lot of Telcel’s offices with employees working on computers out on the sidewalk.
Costco will not reopen until in about 6 weeks followed by Sam’s Club. I have not yet driven to San Jose but people say the One and Only plush resort was leveled and so was Esperanza, another major resort in Cabo.
People here are very grateful to CFE (electric company) for their titanic efforts of reestablishing power in less than 2 weeks. There were more than 300 trucks from CFE working 24-7 and with the electricity the desalination plants were able to operate and we also got water back in two weeks.
There’re big thank you banners all over town to CFE, to all the armed forces, etc. I have to say Pena Nieto has given us the most support.
Anyhow, thought you might be interested in the updates!
Have a great October!!

The Monarch Journey

How do they do it? Really, I have a hard time finding my shoes, and these tiny butterflies travel 3000 miles to a place they have never been. It is an incredible story. Click here.
