Rise and Shine, Osoyoos — It’s Monday, February 15

Good morning, Osoyoos, it’s Monday, February 15. Here’s what you need to know as your day gets going.

  • It’ll be overcast and cloudy today, with showers expected throughout most of the day. Today is the start of a wet week. Rain is forecast every day through Friday. We should reach a high of 7 this afternoon.
  • While we’ll be getting rain, our neighbours to the east and west will be dealing with snow. That could make for difficult driving conditions. You’ll want to check the highways before you head out on Hwy. 3.
  • Our Coyotes won two more over the weekend, running their current win streak to nine. Friday evening, the Yotes won 5-1 over the visiting Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Saturday, it was a 10-1 win in Grand Forks. The Coyotes will go for win number 10 this Wednesday when they host Princeton.
  • It’s amazing to see our community come together. Saturday, you did it again, Osoyoos, raising more than $3,000 for firefighter Blake Sewell at a barbecue hosted by Osoyoos Buy-Low Foods and manned by our Osoyoos Fire department.
  • For nine years, great-grandmother Tinney Davidson has gone to her window every morning to wave and smile at students walking to schools near her home. Yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, they repaid that kindness.
  • It may have been a warm Valentine’s Day in our hearts, but it was cold across Canada. Really cold.
  • De-fence? De-fence? Not in the NBA All Star Game yesterday in Toronto. The West nipped the East 196-173.
  • At least 14 civilians were killed when missiles hit a children’s hospital, a school and other locations in the rebel-held Syrian town of Azaz near the Turkish border this morning.
  • A reminder today is Family Day in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, Louis Reil Day in Manitoba and Islander Day in PEI. If have to do business in one of those provinces and no one answers the phone, now you know why.
