Should I or shouldn't I? Ah, the hell with it ... who gives a damn what the % is as long as it rains.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

The large system to the south is moving up in our direction, I'd be quite surprised if we didn't get any rain tonight!

We did get a small amount of rain last night but it was pretty insignificant, bummer.

It's raining a little here in west kelowna but not as much as I expect. No thunderstorms either, although it looks like there is one north west of kamloops & possibly north of vernon as well.

I remember the government closing the bush down a couple of times . They even pulled the loggers out , until they realized it was better to have them and their equipment on site. What ever happened to that?

That big blob of extreme could certainly use some of the rain we got.

It's interesting to see how close the extreme & low ratings are to each other.

That's because the blue areas had 25mm+ today while the red areas had nothing.
