The Drive Home
Photograph - Photography
The drive home along the Trans Canada Highway during another rainstorm. We have had a very wet spring but at least I haven't had to water the garden.
Flood watch on but threat low. The rain that pounded on Kamloops Tuesday apparently wasn't enough to worry City officials. The river fell more than half a metre over the long weekend. That was enough to ease immediate flood concerns, even though the city was hit by some heavy rain Tuesday. Sand and sandbags are ready to go but have not been deployed yet. ~KDN.
Although Kamloops is located above 50 degrees north latitude, summers are warm to hot with prevailing dry, and sunny weather. Daytime humidity is generally very low (less than 20%) which allows for substantial nighttime cooling. Occasional summer thunderstorms can create dry-lightning conditions, sometimes igniting forest fires which the area is prone to. Spring and Fall are usually pleasant and dry but can be short in duration. Courtesy of Wikipedia.
