It is going to clear up and heat up today and the next few days and that means perfect conditions to catch the annual Perseid meteor shower!

Reports say we can expect up to 1-2 meteors per minute which is higher than normal!

I have been patiently waiting for my Gyroptic 360 camera to come but it is still waiting to be produced and shipped. Was really hoping to have it in time for the meteor shower but no such luck. 🙂 It should now be here before October. Boo-urns 🙂

On top of that it is going to get hot.  We should be near or above 30°C Thursday through Sunday.  The hottest day looks to be Friday.  UWash this morning has us at up to 33°C.

The long range has it backing off on Monday and then getting hot again for Tuesday.

Summer is here! Enjoy the show and sun. 🙂

Will update again Monday.  Don’t miss the July Summary. It has some cool hints for the fall and winter.
