hottest day ever


Wednesday was the hottest day ever recorded in Vancouver, according to CBC meteorologist Claire Martin.

At 5 p.m. PT, Environment Canada recorded a high of 33.8 C, breaking the previous record of 33.3 C set in 1960.

Martin said anyone hoping the heat wave blanketing B.C. will be breaking anytime soon might just have to find some other way to chill out...

At first glance, I thought they were eating popsicles dripping from the heat - had to look more closely to see they were squirt guns. Bet they had a hoot squirting passersby! Thanks for sharing the photo and hope you have a break in the weather soon.
