EDIT – compliments of an update from the NHC … I am thinking Javier would prefer we just drink this one out.
“CORRECTED TO SHOW HURRICANE WATCH FOR SOUTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA
We at least have that going for us. Remember last night when the NHC thought maybe Javier would strengthen into a Cat 1 just before landfall?
However, rain rate has increased! No Bueno!
I think it’s always a good reminder that even if Javier does not hit land directly, that we will still be impacted. The potential track area is for the center of the storm.

My friend pointed out to me an informative graphic I don’t normally post
It’s a good reminder that in a few hours we will witness first hand what Javier is bringing to the table. I prefer cabernet sauvignon … just saying.
We are still all on standby for heavy rains and winds. Things could still change for better or for worse. I know, so optimistic! I’m stuck at work and not at a weather party so …
Remember, we’ve been through a heck of a lot worse, but are all still freaked emotionally from Odile. Remember to be patient and kind to one another. If deep cleansing breaths do not work, try wine. Or vodka. Beer. Tequila. Pick your poison but PLEASE, save the drunk part till it’s over. “Hurricane” parties are fun, I’ve been to many but a clear head is kind of important. I know. I am SUCH a drag. haha
