June 20 2016, 10-day, Full Moon, New Earth, Summer Solstice

A Strawberry Moon? Since I’ve never heard of it until today, I will refer you HERE because its cool, and I am having too much of a Monday to fully study it. But here is a snippet, “Meanwhile, adding a touch of poetry to the whole shebang, the June moon was known as the Strawberry Moon to early Native American tribes, who measured time by things like the moon, rather than a grid on a piece of paper or an electronic device. The full moon that happened now marked the season of strawberries – as it still does.”

There is just something alluring about a full moon. It’s just beautiful. Just about every month people see the moon full and bright and declare the moon full a day early, but I assure you, the full moon is today/tonight. There is this thing going around on the internet that we will see both the sun and the moon at the same time … maybe in other regions but not here. The sun will set in Cabo at 8:07pm, the moon will rise at 8:25.

New Earth? First I’ve heard of it too (other than in scripture).

This is what earth looks like today from the moon.

New Earth

Summer Solstice will officially begin at 3:34 MST for us in Cabo. So in like, an hour! There are plenty of articles and blogs that go on into detail and explain what this means, so I will just borrow one pic from http://earthsky.org so show that it is totally normal for the sun to gradually change it’s position in the sky from our point of view. The matrix is not broken (I can’t believe 1, people believe that and 2, that I just typed it) So on to the pic below … maybe one day I’ll do this with the sunrise. OH!  That gives us something to look forward to in the next turning of the year.


So … I guess it rained in San Jose today? I know we got a few drops down by the Cabo San Lucas marina. I’ve heard it even drizzled but it didn’t last long. Nothing to write home about but it is very humid and it will be a very warm week. Okay total understatement. Heat wave week and it’s gonna suck if you do not have A/C and a lot of water to stay hydrated. Although … if you are here on vacation and get to be in a pool all day you are totally styling!


If it’s too hot for you, it’s too hot for your pets – sad we have to actually explain this to people.


I’m going to go out on a limb and declare it to be rainy for much of Mexico in the next few days. I don’t like “predictions”, but it makes sense considering that its hot, its humid, the water is warm, and over on the Atlantic, as Tropical Storm Danielle – a very large storm, breaks apart and spreads out, the remnants will be carried over by the winds towards the West, reaching our tropical conditions on the Pacific side and then it will rain a whole lot in the ocean but I know what you want … you want to know which coastal areas will be effected and by how much. If I were psychic I’d fo-sho tell you but alas, I am not.

See Danielle below which is a current GIF regardless of when you read this as it is a direct link to the NHC:


That’s all we’ve got for today …




EDIT – this is what I get for being lazy. I noticed Danielle but didn’t really pay attention to the storm until I was looking to see if wunderground has finally added our personal weather station to their network when I noticed this blog! Danielle is a huge threat in the form of flooding to Eastern Mexico! https://www.wunderground.com/news/tropical-storm-danielle-mexico-heavy-rain-flooding

If you or loved one live near the region to be effected, read this then click on the link for more info and save the link for updates!

RAINFALL:  Danielle is expected to produce total rainfall
accumulations of 8 to 12 inches with isolated maximum amounts of
16 inches possible in higher terrain over the Mexican states of
Veracruz, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, Queretaro, Hidalgo, and
northern Puebla.  These rains could cause life-threatening flash
floods and mud slides.  More than 8 inches of rain have already
occurred at Poza Rica de Hidalgo, Mexico.
