August 25, 2013

Last night we had a celebration of life for Dr. Sean Crickmer. Sean will be missed by all he had contact with. I feel privileged to have known him for the past 25 years. He was a good friend, at times my Doctor, and a mentor who has helped shape my career in pre hospital medicine.  If we were all as caring and compassionate as Sean the world would be a better place. Shred for Dr Shred

Five Peaks run this morning (August 25, 2013), cloudy with a few periods of light rain but great weather for running.

At 2180 meters the temperature was +5, winds were 15-30 KPH from the SSW. At 1650 meters the temperature was +9. In the valley the temperature was +16. Observations taken at 11:00 hrs this am.

For the forecast we can expect cloudy skies with periods of light rain showers today. Tomorrow looks like clouds in the morning breaking to sun in the afternoon. The rest of the week is looking very unsettled as the upper level trough with cool moist air lingers with a S-SW flow. The models are conflicting for the long range forecast so confidence is low, but there is a chance for drier and warmer weather Sunday into labour day. More on the long weekend in the next post.
