I’ve been listening to the wind in the trees tonight… sure feels like fall doesn’t it?

We should get a decent bout of rain tonight and into tomorrow. I already see it on the radar making its way down the Island. There is a silver lining though! If we get a good shot of rain it might just mean that the campfire ban could get lifted in time for the Labour Day Weekend (as it has in a number of regions around the province over the past few weeks). Plus it will also mean hopefully that the fireworks planned for the opening of the Salmon Festival on Friday night will go ahead!

They are still calling for a pleasant 25 degrees for Friday so that’s pretty darn nice for Salmon Festival which is often on the rainy side. Later this week I’ll see if I can dig up the stats going back a few years for Labour Day weekends to see how we stand in the grand order of things.

In the meantime, pull in the cushions from the deck so they don’t get wet! 🙂
