NOTICE: Hi folks, just to let you know, the station will not be updating until later this evening. I’m rearranging the living room which includes the Mac Mini weather server. Suffice to say… it’s HOT out there. 34.2C is our high for the day so far. Back soon. Chris

Yesterday the forecast was saying it would be 35 by Saturday. Thankfully, they’ve pared that down by a couple degrees, but they’re still saying it will be in the mid-thirties going into next week. Rev up the fans and make sure your blinds are down because summer is about to come back for Round Two. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts… will it be like July and go on for a few weeks, or will it be like the long-term models predict and oscillate between heat and moisture. We’ll see.

The No Rail No Coal petition will be available for signing again today (Wednesday) at Echo Centre between 9AM and 12PM. I will be outside the Museum/Library Entrance. I will also be down at the Harbour Quay, hopefully camped out at a picnic table, on Saturday 9AM to 11AM.

The petition is also *always* available to sign at the Free Store on Bute and 5th (beside the Play Place).

Please come sign the petition and make your voice heard. More information at www.norailnocoal.ca

  1. Hot, huh? Well for the west coast, that means the fog will stick around. It’s already pea-soup sometimes right on the water.
