Where is the summer going?

July flew by and I missed posting a single post.  I've had a busy summer and when I looked back at the last two months there wasn't a lot noteworthy because June was wet and monotonous weather which soon after July 1st turned to mostly a stunning month of sun with very little rain. Gardens exploded and now it's so dry there is campfire bans and lightning strikes started a number of forest fires so that the skies of the Bella Coola Valley have constant movement of helicopters carrying water buckets.  So far none of the fires are threatening any homes.  The annual music festival in mid July was a big success judging by the turnout and the quality entertainment.  Hopefully August just slowly winds down to cooler weather later in the month and moderate rains to bring the green back to the lawns and that we don't have any extreme weather like 2010.  Grizzly

Note the helicopter just between the peaks carry a water bucket.

  1. Glad you're back! I missed your posts.

    I don't remember seeing those peaks so snow-free. No wonder there are fires!
