More Heat, More Flooding

    All sorts of new temperature records were set across BC yesterday.  Lytton, BC set a record for the hottest temperature ever recorded in all of Canada; a sizzling 46.6C (116F).   Locally we had 37C (98.6, just like body temperature), I don’t know if that is a record or not, but I suspect it is.  Today the Robson Valley is expecting 39C (102F), something I never expected to experience in the normally cool, comfortable Canadian Rockies.  Tomorrow is supposed to be our hottest day of this heat wave.

    As I mentioned yesterday all of this heat is rapidly melting the snow in the alpine, gorging the creeks and rivers causing them to overflow onto the Valley bottom.  The photos show a pasture, adjacent to McBride.  There are a couple of ducks out there, but not any cows.  

Take a look at my paintings:

  1. Hey, want to tell you. I don't know if you have contacts down here yet, but a black bear was spotted near Elberfeld. ;)
    Sorry about you water woes once again. Are you building your ark yet?
