Heavy Rainfall.....again

Today has been a wonderful, sunny day. Since my husband is on "Staycation" he has enjoyed puttering around. Today he has been doing yard work and so I've been serving lunch and coffee breaks outdoors and sitting out there enjoying summer weather. I'm glad we have because here comes the rain again. Environment Canada calls for "The Peace Region could receive another 50 to 80 mm of rain this week.

Environment Canada has issued a statement that heavy rain is expected over northeast B.C. Beginning late Thursday night and continuing through Saturday morning. The forecast calls for 50 to 80 mm of rain.

The majority of the rain is expected to fall over central and southern parts of the Peace region. So far the models have been a bit inconsistent with rainfall amounts and exact locations. However, the pattern indicates a high probability for heavy rainfall over the Peace region starting late Thursday night and continuing through Saturday morning."

Not a thrilling prospect and this on the heels of the last heavy rainfall, resulting in flooding and mudslides. Highway crews are still repairing part of the highway in The Pine Pass that was swept away.
