News reports in the U.S. were still warning that central Mexico could receive up to 15 inches of rain and that there was the danger of flash floods and mudslides. It really sounds as if they were sensationalizing the weather news. When I got up this morning it was drizzling here in Mexico City. I ventured out to run some errands. It was a bit breezy, but I hardly needed the umbrella. By the time I was returning to the apartment, it was raining more steadily, but it certainly was not a downpour. Now, as I write this in the late afternoon the skies are still overcast, but it is dry. Tomorrow the prediction is for partly sunny skies.
For Mexico City Hurricane Franklin was a non-event. Hopefully for the rest of the country it was no big deal either.
