Bella Coola or Vancouver Rain?

The 2010 weather stats are in!  Grizzly painstakingly checked the total monthly precipitation for the Bella Coola Airport and Vancouver International Airport.  The results might surprise you.  While I know a year does not make a trend, the results in 2010 are that Bella Coola is a drier place than Vancouver, but don`t tell too many people that - it`s a best kept secret!  You can see the point I harped about from January to September last year about the `drought`we were having when we only got just over 300 mm of rain in 8 months - too bad that drought ended with 25% of our annual rainfall in one 4 day period in September - it really messed up an otherwise perfect year in the weather history of the Bella Coola Valley.

  1. Thanks for putting that in inches for us Yanks who don't use metrics and live in a world of our own. :)

    Where I live in Utah, we get 8 inches/year. What a difference!
