Title: Records falling from heat wave in NW and another stat that will surprise you!
Post by yellowjacket on Jul 15th, 2021 at 9:10am
Scott will probably chime in on this too.

The heat wave that started on June 27th smashed all records in the NW all the way up to Edmonton where my best friend since high school lives.
The normal temps for June is 70's-80's but on June 28th it was 114 in my backyard!!! My neighbors more accurate gauge showed 112 :o
Temps were back to normal a couple days later... 52 degrees at 7am this morning... BUT

Edmonton where my friend lives has smashed all records... several 100+ days and still recording in the 90's as of yesterday. The stats Dan gave me is shocking, comparing to the Chinese Virus:
The stats  for Edmonton are
Heat: June 25 to July 11, 2021 deaths  917
Suicides: 2019 total deaths  601
Covid: Since inception total deaths  443


Like I've said all along, the virus is government "fear" hype. Flu deaths for the first time was way, way down! Why? Because they blamed most flu's on the virus as it had similar symptoms. This is the DemoCraps way of doing things to scare people and gain control of people's lives. Next up for government control is requiring proof of Covid-19 shots... it's coming.

Lytton, Canada, climbed to 121 degrees and established new national records three days in a row before the town burned in heat-intensified wildfires.

I don't know if you get the humidity , but it's brutal back east. Reminds me of Vietnam & the tropics. Iceland is looking good now

We don't get the humidity. It's dry hot heat.
That one day alone when we got 114 degrees, several of my bushes that were facing the afternoon sun, died, front half dead, turned brown, back half that wasn't facing the sun still alive and green. It happened in one day! :o

Man, I missed this! Yes it was hot!
OMG!

A splash of water in the AM and the PM is the only thing that saved our grass!

Crazy heat!
