Cold, wet spell continues

The cold and wet weather of the last 10 days or more continues. After a little respite on Wednesday, Thursday was miserable, Friday at little better with the temperature rising in the afternoon to around 22˚C. Today it is sharply backwards – wet with a temperature around 11.30 of only 11.5˚C for mid-June. Certainly not good for the vines' flowering.

It's really discouraging, isn't it? Ugh. I'm hoping this ends soon so summer can start.

Yes Walt – very depressing.

S Alberta is in a fine mess, flooding in many places. The grain farmers are going to have a disaster year.
