Since my arrival in January, I have been less than looking forward for the months of april and May. I was warned that this year they were going to be unbearably hot, and even 3 degrees hotter than ever. I'm assuming my mom was speaking in celcius. Merida's high is usually 42*C on the hottest days of the year, so my mom assumed that this meant the temperatures would reach 45. The only thing I saw on the news is that deaths happen every year. To be very careful about what water you drink and to avoid having soups and "juices" prepared outside of the house. To have a minimum of 2 Liters of water a day, and to take over-the-counter medication at the earliest sign of diarrhea.
Since this year was going to be hotter than usual, it made sense that there would be more deaths than usual...and it's not that I want to see anyone die, but April and May came and went and nothing. I guess I prepared myself for waaaaaaaay worse and it's almost disappointing.Yes, it's been hot...but nothing terribly unbearable. And dare I say...I'm getting used to the heat?

I guess I kinda wanted to brag that I survived living somewhere that reached 45*C...but that's silly. I hope nowhere in the world does it reach 45*C.
I'm getting used to seeing sunshine every day, but I miss the rain. A lot.
Today for the first time in god-knows-when, it'll be cloudy all day. The temp is down to 86*F and I almost feel like putting on a hoodie (I miss hoodies a lot).
Alas, June has arrived, and it's Storm Time. My mom has been preparing all of the month of May, buying candles, canned goods, and other type of c-words to prepare for the coming storms/hurricanes/rains.
I'm excited about the rains, but I'm sad that the temperature won't drop very much. It's going to stay hot until the end of the year. I'm not, however, excited about the strong storms and the possible 5 hurricanes that'll hit land. Those should be amazing.
