We’ve only hand planted trees (and their heirs), but we also have smoke.
It’s the longest day of the year, and the clouds were very interesting this weekend. Our first proper rain of the year was a hail storm with pea sized hail. Today’s was just rain off and on.
It was the Cathedral Village Arts Festival today, a crowded street fair down 13th Avenue in Regina. It was hot, and it didn’t rain (like it does many years). I saw tons of people I knew, and many stopped by to talk at the Regina Car Share Co-op booth where I was volunteering. One of the police officers who gave me CPR walked by, so I obviously introduced him to the person I was talking to, and they shook his hand and thanked him for his service.
Slightly related to the sunny day… my solar panels have had near perfect days the past week. That’s how little cloud and zero rain we’ve seen most recently in May. A lot of Saskatchewan is experiencing dangerously dry conditions, and risk of fires remains rather high.
There’s risk of a fiery Love in Saskatchewan’s north (actually central region, but north of most people, so us southerners call it “north”, like Americans do to all Canadians, some of whom are further south than many Americans).
Yes, it’s so hot out you can’t even hear the #climatechange Deniers making jokes about “Where’s Global Warming?”… you know, because when it’s -30 you hear the ignorant phone into radio shows and ask if the globe is warming, why is it so cold in Canada in Winter?
It’s over 30 degrees in Regina today, there was a heat warning from Environment Canada.
Three large tents in the backyard and a propane heater saved the day. Real rain stayed away too.
I wonder when this medieval government in Ottawa will get out the real muzzles? Lying Leona will throw away the keys.
It’s cold tonight. It will be an actual -40 by morning, for the first time in a long while. The wind chill will be brutal.
