Looks like we’re set up for some nice weather again starting today and warming up into Monday and Tuesday next week. Funny you know, if it was any other summer we’d be looking at those 30 and 31C temperatures and going WOW it’s going to be HOT. But not this summer. 🙂 My kids will appreciate the time in the backyard with the pool or at the lake. Unfortunately for me, I’ll be at work again in Nanaimo. Boo. Un-airconditioned sweat box that will be my office. Yippee! 🙂

I had to drive to Whiskey Creek yesterday. There were some pretty good cloudbursts going on and I forgot how fun that first rainfall is on the highway for driving. It was so slick my wife nearly did a doughnut around some of the corners!

Anyway, back to the heat… and here’s something I’ve been pondering. With El Nino the Pacific has been very active in terms of Hurricanes in the East (TS Felicia hit Hawaii yesterday) and terrible Typhoons to the West in Asia. One wonders if we might get one of those Typhoons curling back our way this fall (they often brush by Japan and go up into the Bering Strait) and winter like we did in 2006. Keep your eye on those North Pacific charts.
