Return of Sun

It was back in late November that I was lamenting the coming days at our location where we see the "End of Sun" and the darkest part of winter because of the high mountains to the south of us.  Happily with the clear skies today and being past the shortest days of winter, we are starting to catch a few rays of sun on the edge of our property.  It was a quick six weeks, and there were probably only two to three weeks that we had clear enough days that we would have seen the sun if the mountains weren't in the way. 

Last night in the Bella Coola Valley the temperature dropped to the -4 C range and stayed in that -3 or -4 C area with a moderate Arctic outflow wind.  Cathedral Point in Burke Channel was gusting outflow to the usual 80 + km/h.  Grizzly
