We'll need to run street cars up and down the hills of Fairview slopes, and build a disused prison on Passage Island.

These are Summer Thermals, no?

If so, long range forecast makes them the new norm...

I would think so, but fairly atypical IMO. Typically start up in late morning and shut down like clockwork at 6:05 pm (especially on Wed/Thurs nights for some reason).

Last few weeks the breeze seems to be on pretty much from sun up to sun down. The start of all this pretty much coincided with the beginning of VI360.

Enjoy it while you can

yes... must be the post could not be that there is so much smoke in the air that the ground doesn't heat and the thermal can not set up.
