Wet and Slushy

Another real November day.  Started out in the morning just above freezing again and is still there tonight.  Most of the day was either big wet snowflakes or a bit of rain.  The highway was slushy in the morning and then cleared a little by the afternoon.  This evening it has cooled down a little bit and there was a brief light snow.  Not much of the snow that we got on Sunday has melted, it just settled a little.  Bella Coola at the town site only has a bit of snow. First day in three that the plane wasn`t canceled  to both Bella Coola and Anahim Lake so hopefully anybody waiting to come and go since Sunday made it in or out via the bus route to Anahim Lake.  If I had to pick a month to miss in Bella Coola November would be the only month! 

Judging by the tracks of a  black tail deer I followed in the snow today the valley deer population since Sunday has gone from happily looking down for  their food and enjoying a lot of easily available forage (including my cabbage plants!)  to having to wander and look up for good woody things to browse on,  it must be a disappointing time of year for them.

  1. Are the Black tail Deer in the valley starting to rut yet? Any signs of rub trees? The Mule Deer of the interior are right in the middle of it now.
