Yesterday was 27C in the shade. Well into the low thirties in the bright summer sunshine. Just the same as any good day in July.
And no, that was not a one day anomalie. It's been like this for almost two weeks around here. Yesterday Whistler...yes that's a ski resort...reported 25C in the village. (I'm guessing that most of the snow is gone by now, eh?)
Fifty new temp records were set all around the lower mainland. Some by as much as six or seven degrees!
This is great for water sales...and tourists are flooding onto the island about a month early, as well. The whole town of Ganges is almost as busy as it is at the height of summer.
Sinc, robins are a sure sign of spring..........as are all of the holes being freshly dug in the garden by you know who.

At -9 this morning and a couple of inches of fresh snow on the ground and more falling all day, I have only this to say:
When it's springtime in Alberta
And the gentle breezes blow
About seventy miles an hour
And it's fifty-two below.
You can tell you're in Alberta
'cause the snow's up to your butt
And you take a breath of springtime air
And your nose holes both freeze shut.
The weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around,
I could never leave Alberta
My feet are frozen to the ground.
