This comes as no surprise given our hot dry weather and July in particular. More on that later. The City notice indicates our water reservoirs are getting low, so restrictions are needed to ensure we are good through the summer and fall.

It is worth remembering also that we have had two consecutive falls with extremely long spells of dry weather lasting well into October and November. Let’s hope we have enough water to get us through, and for the fish returning as well.

Note that Beaver Creek residents have been on odd/even numbered days restrictions since June 30th.. Not sure about Cherry Creek residents. If anyone has that info I’d greatly appreciate it.

  1. It’s 35 according to my car thermometer. And 35 according to environment canada. What gives with your 30.9?
    Do you get a breeze?

    1. Yup the breeze will probably do it. Had a decent one today. The Airport got up to 35.2, almost a record but we only got up to 32.7 thanks to that breeze.

      Should be a degree or two cooler tomorrow too. Great weather!
