Well I just got the more obvious answer to my question: your kid texts you.

Just got a text from my older daughter to the effect that school is letting out about 90 mins early today, due to the storm.

What parents whose kids don't take their cell phones to school do, I don't know. Smh...

Yep, calling all our afternoon students to tell them. The actual announcement is for all commercial enterprises. So, I guess the supermarkets, Oxxos, etc. will be closing shop too.

Apart from a few spits of rain and a bit of mugginess, Nate seems to have side-stepped us here in Tulum.

We'll see what sort of shmoo it drags after it.

Hasn't gotten that far up yet. It is tracking a little more northwest than expected but Tulum should be getting some squall action here in a bit.

Raining pretty well as of a few mins ago. Don't know if it's really the start of it but it would fit the projections, if it were, I think...

Actually we just heard from the folks in the Sorianita on Av 30 & calle 38 that given the new projections, they're now going to stay open for normal hours, through the evening. FWIW.

Did the government rescind the order? If not; I would not risk the fine.
