August 2017 My Weather Data

I collect data, and stories about precipitation, here in a page (see above), all month. Also, other weather stories, out of interest. We are susceptible to Mother Nature, and knowing if we our in a drought, or not, helps me with my gardening and my well water usage. 

Our Historical Data: August Precipitation

2017   116.3 mm
2016   88.80 mm
2015   120.7 mm
2014   185.25 mm
2013   166.5 mm

Earth, Air, Water, Wind and Fire

This last day of August, Wasagamack, Manitoba First Nations are in evacuation. MLA Judy Klassen encourages people to donate to Red Cross on their behalf. I did so.
I went to:

Manitoba - Canadian Red Cross

 as they have a real need.

Higher-than-average fire activity<=Manitoba

Wasagamack, Manitoba First Nations

About 130 forest fires are currently burning in Manitoba. Gary Friesen, manager of the fire program at Manitoba Sustainable Development, said the province is seeing higher-than-average fire activity.
Some families were split up and children were panicking when a forest fire forced members of a northern Manitoba First Nation to flee their homes in the dark Tuesday night.

They are still in a flood situation in Texas. The photos are scary. Canada is sending help, as has Mexico, ironically enough.

Aug. 29 Flooding in Windsor

Windsor is a mess, after two days of rain. It's located at the west end of Lake Erie, across from Detroit, so I'm sure they are suffering, too.
“Radar and observations indicate 80 to 150 millimetres have fallen between LaSalle and Tecumseh over the last four hours,” the weather office said at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

I find myself wondering if the storm that came through today was the remnants of Harvey.
