Heavy November Snow

Well the flood warnings for the southern part of the coast aren’t being applied to the Central Coast, but I think they forget to let us know about a snowfall!  The morning started out at freezing with steady rain and by 9 AM had turned to snow and it didn’t stop all day.  Likely have 10-15 cm already in some areas.  Was planning on going cross country skiing at the East Branch XC trails, but road conditions on the hill weren’t looking good and my friend Tweeds over at Tweedsmuir Ski didn’t go up either due to the likelihood of a bunch of new snow and it takes a lot of work to get the trails all groomed again and that’s always more fun to do after the storm has passed.  A good day for inside chores. 

The berries in the photo are about all that’s left on the deciduous trees in the valley now – these berries are Mountain Ash (Sorbus sitchensis) and there was a large crop this year.  Normally they are all eaten by now by bears and American Robins, but they are not all gone yet.  Grizzly
