Friggen auto-correct.

Meant to say “cool,” “you,” and average bear just means the average person. Sometimes my iPhone doubles up words and comes up with strange substitutes for properly written words. You type person, it corrects it to prison and you didn’t even notice.

 

iOS's keyboard is rubbish.  Still miss my BlackBerry :/

And for gawd's sake turn off auto-correct!  Worst invention ever, in my view.

it sure is when it becomes increasingly cumbersome to override it.  it's like piloting a 737 max!  (but without the deaths).

Wow, that’s wild. The old folks used to talk about freak August snowfalls in Edmonton but growing up on VI you’d just brush that off as hyperbole.

You don’t say.

Will this be a one off for a few weeks, or will it stay fairly cool from now on?

its always a dice roll....I have friends in Ft St James, PG and Dawson as well as Calgary, many late summers include some frosts and snow that just as quickly clear up

I don’t actually believe in the weather anymore what with weather modification and whatnot.

Worldwide, it already is: July was globally the hottest month on record.

 

Just because the west coast of North America is pulling the average down a bit doesn't mean there's no problem overall.

The west also includes the three provinces to the east, and they've had as unremarkable a summer as we've had, I think.

 

The west was supposed to be boiling this summer.

Friends in Edmonton have said it has been the wettest, gloomiest summer they can remember.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

That was the forecast, but Europe got the heat instead (where I believe the forecast there was for a relatively normal summer).

 

I forget where I saw this, but I read somewhere recently that an El Nino event just ended (or collapsed); the hot-summer*-in-the-west pattern is classic El Nino, so if they didn't see its end coming this soon that would explain much of the forecast-v-outcome difference.

 

* - or 'hot' any season, compared to normal.

Europe gets its heat from Saharan Africa. Their weather patterns are not related to ours.

Europe doesn’t just get suddenly “hot,” typically wind patterns will shift and heat from the desert travels unimpeded across the Mediterranean and eventually settles over mainland Europe. The continent is literally surrounded along its south and east by some of the hottest jurisdictions on earth. You expect that to affect European climate, including that of the warm Mediterranean regions themselves.
