And that's why God made Mexico

I miss Mexico.

"...And that's why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
And the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm winds blow
That's why God made Mexico

...Cause life is sweet in a border town
You learn to let your hair down
And you don't make trouble
You learn to dance the Fandango
You change your name, maybe change your face
Get used to beans chili paste
And you learn to live and love
Life in the slow lane

That's why God made
Made Mexico"

This calm before the storm...

Blue skies with a white fluffy cloud here and there. Birds are chirping and flying around from tree to tree. Concrete is hot, burned my bare feet - and there's no wind. It's calm. Eerie calm. Yet, 400+ miles out into the Gulf of Mexico dwells Claudette. She's up to 60mph now... wonder if our windows will survive. Ugh. Stupid wires better not snap either. Last time we went about 2-3 weeks without power after the tornado and it was a bitch getting someone out here to finally fix it.
Here's a poem, it's by a guy named Paul Chen.

this calm before the storm
this treasured moment,
this quiet lull,
this calm before the storm

soon, it will end,
soon, become a rage,
this calm before the storm

i savor and cherish,
i will hold in,
this calm before the storm

while it is still,
while you are calm,
this calm before the storm

22.9N - 89.6W

The storm is slowly heading out over open Gulf waters and is forecast to slowly strengthen. Just what we need. A storm to rip our house to shreds. We just fixed our windows from the tornado damage and now big mamma Claudette is giving us the "eye". o.O Hope it doesn't get too strong.
