Summer's back after an unseasonal cold spell

After months of beautiful, gorgeous weather and warmer-than-average temperatures, Vancouver's summer went on summer vacation and October came in to substitute. Typically August is our hottest, sunniest month... but not this August!

No, this August turned into glimpses of cool, breezy, rainy, autumn-like October. "Back to school weather" as I like to call it. You know it's unseasonably cold when you start taking out the alpaca sweaters, jeans, and wool jackets.

But today was the first day where summer came back. I went for a short walk along the seawall to Third Beach and back. Temperatures weren't soaring - it was maybe all of 20 degrees Celsius, but enough for everyone to strip down, pack the beaches, and go for swims. It was ideal summer weather.

This upcoming week is supposed to see temperatures rising once more. I gladly welcome it back!
