The dark area on the right is where the water has been…right up to the dunes

The worst is to come Saturday and Sunday with whats left of Cat 5 hurricane Patricia in Mexico. Projected path right down the coastline. It won’t take much rain to flood here. Already have minor flooding now. It’s going to be a fun weekend.
