Hi Anne, Thanks for getting the ball rolling! It's amazing what little things a person (me, in this case) can learn by just a small comment from someone else (you, in this example). I didn't know what you meant by "Green chile roasters" since that is not part of my culture so I googled it and ended up watching a couple of youtube videos on it. So there you go, I learned something new, thanks to you!

I live on Vancouver Island just off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada and the weather here this summer has been hot and very dry. Now for this part of the world that is very unusual since basically this area is known as a rain forest. Typically it can rain for days on end and you'd be lucky to see the sun shine for more than a couple of hours in a day. Well we've had almost 3 months of solid sunshine and maybe 2 days of rain. In the summer the temperatures might hit the mid to high 70's we've endured temperatures well into the 80's, 90's and even a few days where it was over 100! We are just not equipped for heat like that. Not too many people have air conditioners in their homes and have to rely on those little fans that stores can't keep in stock! For the most part I have been loving it this summer. I love the sun and like to spend a lot of time outdoors so it's been great for me. The downside is forest fires which there have been plenty of but most have been a lot further north than where I live so the only impact on my life is the fire ban. No campfires of any kind. (In parks a person can be fined for lighting a cigarette!) And water restrictions, our garden is looking very dry and not so green and healthy as it should be. I've noticed that the last couple of winters we've had more snow than usual. So weather patterns here and everywhere else on this planet are definitely changing!!
