The dry spell is causing major water issues
The current dry spell is affecting the wells and streams and has no signs of easing. I am hoping that we get a good snow pack and lots of rain(I cant believe I said that) this fall.
The stories in the papers are constant about the Gulf Islands having to haul water by ferry to fill their cisterns, I don’t think I have ever seen it this bad so early in the year, we still have July, August & Sept to go yet which are the worst months of the year.
The provinces have also been plagued by forest fires at record amounts and sizes
