Crystal Clear Pacific Air

Today unfolded pretty close to the way Environment Canada called it.  The day started out calm and sunny, started to cloud over and the wind picked up in the late morning.  Around noon there was the tiniest amount of raindrops for about 2 minutes, then the wind really picked up.  It blew pretty hard most of the afternoon and evening with the Bella Coola Airport weather station showing gusts up to 58 km/h.  Then tonight it cleared right off. What it did do was blow in beautiful clear fresh air off the Pacific Ocean that just had the fresh clean late summer air smell that we take for granted in Bella Coola. 

It made for wonderful views of the mountains finally, even if we are 'trapped' behind 250 km of closed Highway, the stores have still got food, there's a few fish around, lots of stuff in the garden and we aren't burning...we've got it much better than some areas. Grizzly
