Very true, theres lots of action out there its just that it's not hitting the Lower Mainland. 12zGFS showed exactly this with much higher rainfall totals to our south, North and in the interior. Oh well. At least there's alot of water in the reservoirs this year unlike 2015. We're still good for a couple more months but I'm sick of the Arizona-like weather. Everything looks yellow and dead and the air has been brutal with smoke and ozone. My friend from China said it reminds him of back home.

I'm still around, reading the forum.
It has been determined my Dad will likely never walk again but we are hopeful he will gain function in his wrists and hands. All in all, not a good summer.

Wondering if we will get thunderstorms this afternoon.
This is absolutely sad, our prayers continue to be with and your Dad, Mrs. Leighbugs.

EC too bullish with the showers (again) I haven't had a single drop of rain yet. One of the spokeswoman for the BC forest service said they're not getting nearly as much rain as was expected in many areas of the Interior and the Coast. This means they are royally F'd because we have another heat wave on the horizon and long range is bone dry. This summer reminding me of 2003. That year the interior fires really got going in mid August. Same thing gonna happen this year unless pattern changes quickly.

I come back from Buntzen Lake. A few showers there (maybe 1mm) but nothing here. Drought continues...
