NEW STORM ON THE WAY - Tropical Depression 13 is developing about 110 nautical miles West Southwest of Acapulco. The current forecast predicts it becoming a hurricane by Friday morning and possibly passing within 100 miles West of the Baja Peninsula. The extreme Eastern side of the initial forecast of the possible track includes the Baja Peninsula.

As with Hurricane John, we'll attempt to provide updates as frequently as possible. Here are some sites we use to keep an eye on things:

Getting Blood Tests/labs - I will need to have my blood tested for Thyroid levels while I am in TS this winter. I am assuming this is a safe and reliable thing to do there either in Cabo or La Paz. Anyone with any experience or comments of where to go, what to look out for, etc? - aselffamily (-at-) yahoo.com (Cross posted From TS Live, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tslive/)


Re: The computer tip in the last Baja Western Onion about making text larger and smaller on a PC screen...

I don't know about PCs, but on a Mac you can also hit Command + (The Apple/Command key and the Plus sign) to bump the font up one size. Command - (The Apple/Command key and the Minus sign) does the reverse. Cheers - Eric Singer
