Vancouver and Central England have had one thing in common, record rains. Although here in Vancouver the rain hasn't been nearly as bad as in the UK, which has been a result of El Nino.
However, we have had enough rain to set records for the most consecutive days of rain for July. Yes Vancouvites haven't seen their vitamin d for days. That's certainly our problem.
But hopefully all of that will change Wednesday with the HSBC Celebration of Light. The weather forecast calls for sun and lots of it. So that little rain might not hurt as much. I'm looking forward to all of the fireworks as it is one of the highlights of the summer here in Vancouver.
In case you are interested in the Fireworks Schedule, it is as follows:
Spain - July 25
Canada - July 28
China - Aug 1
Finale - Aug 4
