Like many, many Canadians we are watching and enjoying the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Olympics. The death of the Georgian luger was a really unfortunate and sad event, but the Georgian team showed resolve and did a good thing by participating in the ceremony.
We will be watching and cheering all the Canadian teams on for the next few weeks, hopefully the weather cooperates and brings some great days and great sportsmanship for all the teams.
I'd like to say bring the Olympics to Bella Coola and we'll show you some winter weather, but alas we are having the same El Nino mild weather. It's very pleasant because it's not extreme in any one direction, but I'm starting to see stories on the interior mountain mid winter snow packs and they are way down. It can only mean more trouble ahead when the great river basins of our province (Fraser, Skeena, Columbia, Peace) are suffering with low snow packs. Only two months of snow weather or a rainy summer can fix that problem. Grizzly
