7" of Rain!

Ed Note: In the first version of this posting I accidently used Bella Bella Airport which received 13" - Grizzly

The numbers are in and it's true, between Oct 28 - Nov 1 at the Bella Coola Airport they recorded 186 mm or approximately 7" of rain! Put this on top of freezing levels that went up very high with a recent snow pack and a flood is the result. Data is recovered from Environment Canada for the Airport.

It was a beautiful day in the valley, by mid day the residual low cloud cleared and blue sky and cool afternoon prevailed. Walking about and looking at places only a few days ago were either raging torrents or under a lot of water, today it seems calm and fresh. Describing to someone what the weather was like a few days ago who wasn't here loses something in the translation if you weren't there to experience and enjoy 186 mm of rain.
