So we got up to 70kph this evening (18:20). That’s the point where I have to call in to Environment Canada as a Severe Weather Watcher. Which I did. The forecaster on the other end of the line sounded reasonably impressed. Obviously since they didn’t issue a warning for our area, they weren’t looking for winds that strong in our area. (Central VI)
So there you go Eve! Our first official wind and rain storm of the fall!
Pretty good one. We should get a dozen or so more millimeters or more of rain before it starts to clear up in the morning.
Hopefully it will blow through in time for the Olympic Torch to come through town on Sunday! You can check it out between 11:30AM and 12PM at Bob Dailey. Then it’ll be run through town, down 10th, Argyle, to the Lighthouse, to Harbour Quay by boat, then back onto land, down 3rd, onto a logging truck at Redford, and down Stamp and onward from there to the West Coast.
Oh, and if you’re looking for the Snow Contest, just click the link at the top left to enter your guess and see the calendar.
You can see the map for the torch relay route here.
