You don’t have to tell local firefighters that it’s been a dry spring.
For the past week, grass and brush fires have erupted throughout the Quinte region on a daily basis, including several just yesterday.
Meanwhile, a check with Environment Canada tells the tale of the tape as far as rain is concerned.
We are now two thirds of the way through the month of April but we have received only one third of the month’s average rainfall.
As measured at CFB Trenton, to date just 22.9 mm of rain has fallen. The average amount of rain for April is 77.3 mm.
