I’ve been running some data analysis on my weather archive here. A record is stored in my database every 5 minutes… so far I have 230,000 records! That’s over 800 days of data… or over 2 years and counting.

  1. was in Tofino from yesterday afternoon until early this evening,on business…honestly, at this time of year, I wish that I had the great fortune of living there…..weather wise, for sure. Must admit that I would never go there in the summer…..haven’t since being a kid. Different weather every few minutes. Lots of wind, rain, sun, fog….all my favourite stuff! And so often you look out the window and whala! A smorgasbord of my favourite thing….weather. If that’s your thing then go there now.
