Still Trucking

You have to give the guys credit who have been working since September 25, 2010 (The Great Flood of 2010) almost everyday except for two weeks off at Christmas.  I heard they only shut down for one weather day when there was blowing, drifting snow and no visibility.  These big trucks are hauling gravel being dug out of channels overfilled after the flood and depositing in nearby spoil sites where some gravel is needed.  They chipped away when it was frozen, barely slowed down yesterday when the side creeks to the Bella Coola River water level  popped up a wee bit and handled all the icy roads.  I bet they are hoping to see the end soon.

By the photo you can see that the end of the day turned out not bad and we could see the mountain tops, back into fresh snow as the freezing level dropped near the end of the rainstorm of the last few days.  All is good in the Bella Coola Valley weather.  Grizzly
