    How the weather today

    It's hotter inside your house than outside. My place in Cholla is the same 94-95 degrees when we open up our house during the summer. The mini-splits run for 3-4 hours before it's under 85. People really need to like the heat and humidity to go this time of the year.

    Lots of pangas a few miles out south of Penasco

    Gasoline Shortage in Puerto Peñasco

    Humm? Here is a gas price column chart from 1980 adjusted for inflation. 1980 gas was $1.22, in 2021 dollars that works out to $3.32. I'm sure it's higher for 2022 because of 2021-2022's inflation.
