Like most of Ontario we were left wondering this long weekend where our summer went. Ottawa is having it's wettest July in recorded history. While out on the west coast, where the weather is normally wet and mild, they're dealing with heatwaves !! We've got water seeping into our basement, our yard furniture has green stuff growing on it. Weather, a normally boring topic, has been on everyone's lips these days !

Portland, Oregon has been more like Phoenix, Arizona for the past week - I believe we had a high of 106 F. Unlike Phoenix, Portland has few swimming pools - we do have a few rivers, and a very big ocean some distance away. Thank the Lord we're back to the 80's F today! This part of the world is prone to summer fires since summer rain is very sparse on the West Coast. I hear that British Columbia had a major fire last week, and the forecasters predict that W. Oregon will be next due to very dry conditions.

We've been rained out in Montreal every Sunday since sometime in June. Although Mondays are always bright and sunny! It's been a pretty crappy summer here, weather-wise.

Aren't we supposed to get meteorogically compensated for 6 months of winter????

I don't know about you guys, but we don't. We just get garbage strikes on top of the crappy weather.

Ok, so it seems Quebec and Ontario have more in common with the Netherlands than one might expect

Sure, if you look underneath the snow and our rough exterior. We Canadians are a lot like you Dutch. We got your windmills, bicycles, pot and strippers too.

I honestly have no complaints about our summer so far. We've had one week (early on) with 90+F and it's been 70s and low 80s since. Our little valley has been missed by all the major thunderstorms (including the grapefruit-sized hail in some places). We've had adequate rainfall but have dodged some bullets in the process. Iowa - to our west - has been just bombarded with t-storms but they've lost strength moving over the Mississippi and/or moved to the south or north of us. Though, on our way to Rock Island, we saw fields of corn and soybeans absolutely devastated by hail. I've never seen a complete soybean field with all of the plants devoid of foliage because of the frozen rain. It went on for miles and I felt sorry for the farmers - hoping they had crop insurance. We've turned on the A/C once - for that week in the 90s.

We're good with temps and rain until this coming Friday, when it's reported it will hit the 90s (F) again. We get to go to the Sweet Corn Festival (a yearly thing in Mendota, IL, because we actually like beerman's brother-in-law's family) on Sunday. It's suppose to be 95F - oh boy...

I can't remember a summer as pleasant as this one has been in a very long time.

Just like the other things, we just don't export the good stuff that's all. ;)
