Based on the 30-year average, Manitoba Agriculture pegs the “climate normal” accumulated precipitation for what are typically the wettest months of the year — May, June and July — at 205 millimetres for the areas around Brandon, Rivers and Minnedosa. In the stretch of 2020 from June 28 into Canada Day, those areas received three months’ worth of rain in three days. The Co-operator’s WestMan reporter, Alexis Stockford, takes us on a trip through the area. (All photos by Alexis Stockford except where noted.)
