27-31C or so. Not too extreme.
That's what you said for last week Mr. M and we all now what happened. :D

I thought I said 28-33. But I don’t honestly remember. This week looks doubtful many places would top 32 or so. Weekend could potentially be hotter.

With fall coming.......eventually, I did some maintenance on my weather station today. Took it down and apart and cleaned everything including the solar shield. Installed a new rain gauge. Hopefully it works better now, as the old one definitely wasn’t recording each tip of the bucket.

23 plus 30 days and we are about to roast on a skewer for another 2 weeks. I'm in Kelowna right now, brutal smoke! This has to kill the tourism buzz.

Keep them guessing with oil of Olay.
Or olive oil.


Oil of Olay, wouldn't know what to do with that, olive oil on the other hand...yummmm. Forrest, when you're up here that's another place to go if you have time, Sunshine Coast Olive Oil, https://sunshinecoastoliveoil.com/ in Gibsons, they have the most amazing flavoured oils and vinegars. It's also close to Molly's Reach.

Yes, the Sunshine Coast is a happening place...unless it's after 9 pm - lol. Lots of festivals and things that bring tourists to clog up our tiny, winding highway and ferry.

Probably got about 3-4 mm of rain last night. It sure smelled nice.
