Why Hurricanes Are Not So Bad After All

Normally this time of year brings heat, heat and more heat to most of Mexico. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the heat. I would much rather fry than freeze, however when I am not able to lie on the beach and enjoy the heat, it can be hot as hell.

I work as a teacher and my timetable is in the afternoon until the evening, during the hottest time of the day – what really should be siesta time. Standing in front of a class of teenagers who don’t want to learn, in around 35ºC (95ºF) heat and humidity to the max is not a lot of fun. That is, until there is a hurricane. Where I am we never really get hit very hard, instead we get the leftovers in the form of rain. Nice cool rain that lasts for 2 or 3 days. It feels like a fire being put out. It is bliss.

So a few days ago when this happened thanks to Hurricane Carlotta off the coast of Oaxaca, I had a few days of teaching heaven. Nice cool rainy heaven. So although they can be a pain in the butt sometimes, most of time, they are not so bad after all.
