One of the things which attracted us to the city of Guanajuato, and indeed Central Mexico, was, and I know this sounds cliche, The Weather.

It has been a wonderful weather ride here in Mexico's Crown Jewel with the Eternal Springtime one reads of in the guidebooks. It is consistently warm, fair weather that makes life far more enjoyable than where we came from in the States, Kansas City, where the icy winters can freeze the power lines cause you to go without heat for two weeks, or longer, at a time. We definitely do not miss that.

As I write these words, it is 10/21/2012, 4:30pm, and it is a warm Sunday afternoon and very much like Springtime outside. Believe it or not, I am running a fan in my room right now.

The Guanajuato weather is not always as agreeable as it is this afternoon. Though having the nickname, Eternal Springtime, it can get nasty with flash-flood rains, freezing-cold January days, and humidity enough to straighten anyone's hair in the rainy season. But, it all seems to me to be short-lived when the weather becomes a little contrary.

Afterall, Eternal Springtime has to has to take a vacation sometime.
