The fisherman in the village call a week long period of rough windy weather when they can't get their boats out 'The March Blow'. It seems to be an annual event . A part of the weather cycle when the seasons shift in March. They say its a good time to go drink or make babies.
I've been here 20 years and see it happen every march, a week of canceling trips in Boats for anything. The date in march seems to have to do with the moon waxing but never after the full goes waning.....but hea I don't predict the weather.

Wild weather indeed. Amazing light show last night.

For those of us too old or too sensible for the making babies or go-drinking thingy, may I suggest a day of spa treatments at Xamen Ek? Ahhhhhhhhhhhh...........

I hope the "March Blow" is over by the time I get to San Pedro.

I want to log some serious bottom time while I'm down there.

We arrive on the 29th of March.

Got blown out for fishing on Monday and re-scheduled for today (Wed) with the hope that it would lay down. It's still blowing pretty hard but were ging to give it a try as, later in the day, it's supposed to lighten up some. This wind sure must be burden on all the folks who can't work when it's blowing but I guess it's a bit like farmng when the forces of nature take command. Have fun! Bob

Breakers on the beach at CC so no fishing this morning. Weather report calls for wind to let up later today - we'll see. Have Fun! Bob

Just heard on the morning show that the road from the bridge to Reef Village is underwater due to the surge.

waves surging through the decking of docks up this way... pretty amazing. Will certainly be a lot of shuttling of sand once this blows over.

The Lamb arrives with the full moon and usually with a nice rain to rinse off all this dust.
Interesting to see how everyones beach erosion strategies are working or not working. I like to pay attention to what worked and copy it. Sea walls suck for the neighbor to the south don't they.
Waves are energy and dissipating energy over a large area like a beach is less destructive. Its sort of is like some Tan Sau or Aikido philosophy, deflect and rechannel wins over blocking and striking.

Simon , The flooding up there is because when the waves make it over the sea wall its trapped and can't run back into the sea. Can you tell I don't like sea walls . If I was Robert Frost I would write a poem about them, we don't have frozen ground swells but have some great sea swells.
