May the 4th was with us all right!

May 4, 2017

The beautiful view looking north from Alder St. and West Broadway Ave. at 7:47 a.m.

Thursday May the 4th in Vancouver certainly hasn’t been as warm as a typical day on the planet of Ryloth but it’s been spectacularly summery for our specific time and location, out here in the “uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy”, as at least one of the guidebooks would have it.

Strange thing to find on the street and a strange thing to lose there. The morning sun shines on a lost and found sign in the 100 block of West Broadway.

The day turned out to be mostly sunny and with temperatures over 20° Celsius, as was forecast earlier in the week. Predictably, Fairview residents could be heard toward the afternoon complaining about the heat—the same residents who will likely pine for the snows of December come July.

Just before 8 a.m. the charmingly mismatched awnings of the 1400 block of West Broadway are ready to shelter the coming waves of pedestrians.

It’s still warm now at 6 p.m. but steel-grey clouds are piling up in the eastern sky, so we may even get the thunderstorm predicted by forecasters (though I’m mot holding my breath).

Oh, in case anyone cane to read this modest little post expecting something related to Star Wars I’m sorry to disappoint. The last time there was anything like that in this blog was a long time ago in post far, far away—on March 5, 2015 to be specific. Click the images to enlarge them.
