Contrast Day

Today was a contrast day in the Bella Coola Valley.  The contrast between the miserable rain storm and flood of September 24-28, with 300 mm of rain, followed by a beautiful warm September day, just like September in the Bella Coola Valley should be.  It was a contrast of some parts of the valley which were unscathed and people were out mowing lows and chopping wood or trying to go to work - just like normal should be - to places that had homes devastated with high water and are faced with starting again, finding a new home to live in and sorting out their lives - everything we try to plan our lives to avoid.  We've got a forecast of good warm weather for a few days so it will really help, physically to dry things that people have outside and mentally to brighten us up.   

Don't forget to vote in the Great Canadian Song Quest - 2010 for the Freedom Highway - It closes tomorrow night - we have a chance to make Highway 20 - "A Great Canadian Highway".  Grizzly
