Drove home from Vernon on the Commonage Road route hoping for dramatic weather.
None was to be had. Cloud formations adjusting their skirts to floating on by.
A smattering of rain lasting 35 seconds and sun.
As WW3 develops, no one is going to be dissing the "preppers." What have you done?

Rutland got a bit more last night, and the humidity was something else :200:

I got a whole bunch of yard work done, then came in for a break and it poured. Love that! Good - unintentional - timing.

It is really pounding east of the Okanogan...

I'm wondering! It was cool enough to use my oven today . . .

It won’t take long with hot temperatures to bring fire risk back upwards.

In the meantime, though, things are greening up beautifully!

Gawd, it's rather coastal out there.
Vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom, sharpened a chainsaw, took the garbage down, Load of laundry in. Petted and fussed over the dogs, loaded mouse traps, now what?

Watching the grass grow.
I was in the bush yesterday helping get some firewood. Amazingly green out there. Going to be some happy cattle in their range.
That will all be dried up in a few months though.

Okay, so we had a 9 day heat wave, so I calculated the average temperature... and wouldn't you know it, Kelowna was hotter than Osoyoos over the 9 days (though a little cooler if we look at fewer days)! And we are talking about UBCO which is 150m higher than the lower parts of the city!

Seewood, Frisk, and GordonH were having a massive fight yesterday about the heatwave. Frisk was saying that the 17th was the hottest day of the heatwave and GordonH and seewood were claiming the 17th was actually the coldest day of the entire 9 day heatwave!

Lady tehMa doesn't like fighting so she eventually messaged me to quickly make a graph or two that would settle this dispute. I made a graph and realized Seewood in Nelson and GordonH in Osoyoos were just as right as Frisk in Ashcroft because... and I hate to sound woke... it was all relative to where you lived, so they were all right.

On average, across BC the 16th was the hottest day, but someone was experiencing their hottest day each of the 9 days of the heatwave.

An oldtimer told me one time that when things start looking really green it means hail. Look at the colors here:
