Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain in our Extraordinary Southern Zone of Costa Rica
November 23, 2016
"Cooperative Sloth" by Allan Wyatt
"May you live in interesting times" seems spot on as Hurricane Otto makes its way to & through & around Costa Rica and our neighbors. In the last 12 hours it was classified a "hurricane" then dropped down to a "storm" and now I'm reading that it will augment again to hurricane status. Here in the Pacific Southern Zone ... we might well be spared the direct affects but we can expect much rain & wind & whatever is blown our way. Please stay safe & prepared. Be especially vigilant around bridges. Share any blocked roads or downed bridges info with your neighbors and with us too, if you would like. We will keep a blog post of anything important you should know.
Yes, our feria in PZ will be open this Thursday & Friday.
Definitely recommend you check up on any flights coming or going ...click here for airport in Alajuela link.
Hereis an emergency message put out yesterday by the US Embassy but hasn't been updated as of this moment. If Otto does hit land here in Costa Rica .. it will be an historic event as our tiny country is usually protected by its neighbors. Click here for more information on preparation and here to read about how rare an event this is.
We are all so blessed to be connected to each other in this loving community ... hopefully we will have phone service & power & internet ... although anything is possible! As always, trust in God & tie your horses.
Just talked with Carol Vaughn and her wonderful Friday Luncheon @ Bazookas is on and a great opportunity to meet & hear the remarkable, Jesse Blenn. Check Events pageherefor details.
