Enjoy :) The TRUE Summary of Weather in Vancouver (compiled one grey June morning) After 6 years of living in Vancouver and more than 4 years of closely monitoring the weather daily via vancam, I qualify myself as a Recreational Weather Expert. If temperatures in the city remain below 10'C you can get some of the best ski conditions on the planet (2011, 2012). Sun about 10 days a month where the blooms are out in full force. Usually about 5 above average sunny days where you are convinced summer is here to stay. This is a true slap in the face when the rest of the country has already enjoyed weeks of hot summer weather.
Book your time off for now, send the kids back to school, and enjoy the ideal time to absorb the last bit of sun you will see for the next 10 months. We had such a great 1.5 months of summer and we probably need the rain anyways.
The days are getting shorter and snow starts to appear on the very tops of the mountains.
The two oldest owlets are now 8 weeks old, so they are getting very close to testing their wings for the first time at night.
So it does take the owlets a little while to coordinate their wings and fully utilize them, sort of like us when we start to walk or learn how to bicycle.
The owlets will likely return to the nest box or be sleeping (roosting) in a tree nearby in the daytime.
