No wonder everyone is acting like crazy nuts, it is all because of the heat. Here is why, yesterday we hit 33.8C in Vancouver, so that means it was a little warmer in Fort Langley because we are further away from the ocean. But today the mid day high hit 34.4C, breaking the previous record set just 24 hours ago. The previous record was held back in 1960, and I still don’t know what that temperature was.

Just remember that places like Kamloops and Kelowna easily hit the 40 to 45C mark. And even communities like Hope and Chilliwack got up there too.
