The National Emergency Commission (CNE) declared Guanacaste on yellow alert drought status due to El Niño’s impact this year. In their statement, “a meteorologist in Liberia this month registered a deficit of 70% in rainfall. He noted that the average rainfall in the region is 247.4 mm while this year, in July, there have been only 16.6 mm." That’s nothin’.

What does this mean? Conserve on water consumption!!! Just some ideas to help out: Defrost in the fridge. Let grass grow longer. Re-use “waste water” for plants. Shorten shower time….you get the point. Oh, and you might want to make sure you have some water stored, just in case they start limiting water hours.

Surfside Security Update

Please be aware that there have recently been some attempted break-ins in the beach area, and S.E.S. is currently providing an extra officer on patrol.  There is a suspect: a dark-skinned man, lame in one leg, who has also been seen walking around during the daytime. 

If you see this person, S.E.S. asks that you call the office number, 8413-9146, anytime.  

Stay safe.

Make sure to look up as the first perigee moon, a.k.a. “super moon,” will be tonight. At it’s closest to the Earth, tonight’s full moon has the potential to appear 14% larger than normal and up to 30% brighter!

We think that’s worth a peek!

Cuidado folks! After this blast rain we got today there are some trees uprooted and power lines down! (Both of which we know Coopeguanacaste is working on fixing right now on Calle Mango in Surfside.)

Watch out for low hanging branches, and please be mindful not to splash those on foot or bici!

It was an even game today against an opponent who was looking for its first win. I’m delighted we’ve topped the group. We are prepared to face whoever comes and we will face them with great confidence.
