I think it was another poster on SI, can't remember who. Maybe it was just one big'un?

In any case, I can't imagine going through even tennis ball sized hail. Heck, I would run and hide if someone was pelting me with actual tennis balls!

The first official day of summer will feel more like the dog days of the year's hottest season for some. A heat wave will ramp up in northern New England and part of southeastern Canada just in time for the summer solstice, which kicks off the summer season on June 20.

Meanwhile, on the We(s) Coast we continue on with June-uary, cool and wet most of the time as is usual for this month.

On the bright side, wildfires in BC this year have so far been less than a tenth of what they were the last few years.

Meanwhile, here in Vancouver in 'Junuary' we are overjoyed to be hitting 20/68 today.

We have developed an unfortunate pattern here which is about to occur for the 5th week in a row-- decent weather Monday to Friday, and rain on the weekend.

Enjoy the heat!
