The weather reminds us of our DNA’s homeland. Either tropical or desert, we have the natural terrain running in our veins.  Grab that Abuelita hot chocolate and enjoy re-connecting with your roots.

We’ve got sand bags, bags of beans, bags of recyclables, bags of rice, bags as trash cans, bags under our eyes-you name it. We have been prepared. We didn’t cross El Niño, El Niño crossed us.

12. We’ve been here and we ain’t goin’ nowheres, homes.

We’ve been waterproofing roofs way before the Mexican War, so we will be safe. Thanks to our handiness, homes have been leak-proof way before Christopher Columbus.
