As I suspected might happen yesterday, Environment Canada has boosted the forecast for the weekend!

Now we’re looking at mid-20s for the whole weekend plus Monday! I expect it to last into Tuesday as well.

Yippee! Get out the fan.

In other news. Unless you’ve been under a rock lately, you likely know there is a Public Meeting on the Raven Coal mine today. The information session starts at 2PM and runs until 5PM. There is a Public Meeting with presentations and Q&A at 6PM until 10PM.

It’s at the Athletic Hall (beside the Multiplex).

If you can’t attend in person I will also be streaming it through the VIU Media Studies Dept. at:
