    And, a year later, same day, the highest temperature ever measured in Canada.

    ‘The highest temperature officially recorded in Canada is 45 °C (113 °F) on July 5, 1937 at Midale and at Yellow Grass, two small towns in southeastern Saskatchewan’

    Environment Canada finally updated their chart (daily) of snow cover extent for NA.
    Since the middle of May, it has been well above the mean band.
    At the seasonal low last August, it was somewhat above.
    It will be interesting to see if this maintains through this August.

    Drudge is, and has been, largely compromised for some time now. He appears to have some latitude to post conservative-leaning news, but only, it appears, if he also includes a sizable helping of agit-prop. He has to play along, or else the consent-manufacturing spooks would shut him down.
