The "Winter"

Since it's spring now and the end of March, I guess we can talk about the winter that was.  It really was a different kind of winter for the Bella Coola Valley, pretty much starting in early November and ending by Christmas time.  I checked the low temperatures and the coldest day was December 14 at -15.7 C at the Bella Coola Airport Environment Canada weather station. We never had any real cold weather after that time.  Both January and February were very nice months as winter months go.

We only had two moderate sessions of outflow winds that were by no means 'epic'.   After December there was next to no snow, with the whole winter totaling less than 40 cm, which is often what we get in one snowfall on a bad winter.  The upper Bella Coola Valley above Noosgulch River got more snow than the lower valley.  March has been pretty hum drum  and blustery, compared to how nice February was. All in all it doesn't get much better for a Bella Coola Valley winter.  Grizzly
