Well what else is there to talk about
Aug 1, 2011

There's an old joke/urban legend that Vancouverites are so acclimatized to the even, temperate weather that they'll complain that a month is "unseasonably hot/cold" if it only varies from the average by 1°C. Well, that appears to be true, because if you take the difference between the mean temperatures for July in 2010 and 2011 that's what you get... 1°C. If you take the difference between the average HIGH temperatures, you get 1.5°C, which is 0.5°C less embarassing in my opinion, so that's what I used for the comic. The rainy bit is true. Summer seems to have meandered in this past week and we're all very happy to have it :) 

I bet it would be really tough to be the weather ombudsman, no one is EVER satisfied :/
