DanH talks as if this is our first rodeo, I think for sure we this year have had 3 or 4 major rain events which has caused a considerable amount of run off and road damage, the last couple of days is just another event. This part of the coast rains from mid June to mid October (hence why they call it the rainy season), roads wash out, sewer overflow and life continues on after the event, no differently than today. To my best knowledge, we have never (knock on wood) had a major breakout of any disease resulting from the water flowing through the town.
I think it is very irresponsible for chicken little to be running through town stating that we are doomed. No, now we are drying out as we have done many times before.
Having said that, could the entire infra-structure be improved, YES, but at whose expense. We live and enjoy an almost ZERO based tax life, so who is going to pay for the improvements? I would like to see DanH write a cheque or give CASH (which is even better) to start the improvements. Oh yes, we need a plan, well there is the first job that needs attention, the making of a plan.
Well Mr. Dan, how about volunteering to meet with the ejido to discuss some options instead of pretending we have a disaster on our hands. Fortunately for many of us, the water does in fact run down hill and eventually flows into the sea, where the tides will deal with it in a timely fashion. Again, this is nothing new or different other than the fact, the latest rainfall was in March instead of June.
I agree with Daniel, scaring the crap out of everyone is not a constructive solution to anything and I for one think your delivery (message) is the thing that is full of crap.
