Hurricane Rick

Looks like a big Cat5 headed for the Baja area. Second strongest pacific hurricane ever recorded. Lets hope it weakens before it makes landfall.

Good luck to anyone in the area!

Back in 2005 there was a big one that wiped out La Paz and some other marinas.

That is good news.

Down to a Cat3 right now with 'only' 108 kts.

and it's moving at half the speed as yesterday.

this hurricane spawned about two days after I bought my tickets for Christmas in Cabo. What do you want to bet I could have gotten them cheaper this week?
