It's that time of year in Bella Coola whenever we get rain, there is a good chance it's coming down as snow on the mountains. The surprise part is to wait till the clouds clear in the morning to see how far it came down the mountains. This morning it was down a long ways when the few sunny breaks allowed a glimpse. It's not a steady progression of snow moving down yet, because it only takes one warmer rain system and the snow will easily go, but the trend is clear.
Progress is happening on Highway 20, tomorrow the road will start opening three times daily instead of two, much handier. It's too bad that it has been so hard this last three weeks getting around the valley because the fall colours are really nice this year. The dry summer we had must have helped stress the trees which always makes for nice fall colours. Grizzly
