After all the excitement on the weekend, this will be a short post today in preparation for the August Summary.

We will have showers on and off all week until Friday.  It looks like we might clear up Saturday and Sunday which should make for a decent Labour Day weekend and beyond.

Our total rainfall for the weekend in town didn’t come anywhere near the 60-100 that the models predicted at times.  We received 1mm on Friday, 16.3mm on Saturday and 8.4mm on Sunday.  The Airport got a little more than that… 2.8mm, 27.8mm, and 10.2mm respectively.

And and feedback I got on the gallery was to stick with the previous image style, so I will. 🙂

Barring any major issues, the next post will be the August summary.  Should be interesting!

Happy Monday and Final day of August!
