Weekly Life Lessons with a Mexico Mom – As a wife of one and a mom of four, it seems like I am always learning and discovering! I know I am not alone. Let’s just admit it: The world is a big place, life is a lesson, and children can be the best teachers. This will be my standard introduction for Life Lessons. I hope you join me every week for a hearty laugh, a deep thought, or maybe both, if I am really on the ball.
Here are my insights and experiences as a Mexico Mom, living in Mexican mountain weather, for the week of March 30th, 2015:
Life Lesson 62: It hails in Southern Mexico.
Last week, we had marble-size hail at least three times. It was enough for us to bring the truck in the garage. Uruapan is less then three hours from the Pacific ocean. Two years ago, If someone had told me that it would hail in Southern Mexico, I don’t know if I would have believed them.
Life Lesson 63: Too much rain is depressing.
It has been wet and dreary for over a week. My laundry is slowly drying in the house and garage. We even had a little flood upstairs in the school room, and along the wall in the foyer. This must be unusual for Uruapan because the locals were driving as if there were six inches of snow on the roads. I need some sunshine! Go away rain!
Life Lesson 64: Mexico is not all sun, heat, and desert.
Uruapan is a city surrounded by avocado orchards and green mountains, and with that comes cooler weather. We use a blanket at night when the temperature drops, we wear jackets, boots, and long pants, and sometimes in the early morning you can see snow on the mountain tops.[bctt tweet=”#lifelessons – #weather in #mexico”]
