2011 Flood Over

At first glance the Bella Coola Valley would seem normal if someone arrived this afternoon and saw the beautiful snow capped mountains and some sunny patches.  You would know something had happened though as soon as you look at the river and see the high, brown and slightly angry look to the Bella Coola River.  There was light rain throughout the night, some very heavy rain at daylight, but then very soon after that the weather system was done. The Bella Coola River has dropped a long ways but will be high and dirty for quite a few days now.  Coho fishing won't be possible for at least a week, all dependent on whether the mountains stay cold.   Now there is the cleanup and fix up work for homeowners, parts of the highway (mostly shoulders) and some dikes to be repaired.  October and November have also been legendary for big rains in the Central Coast so now we all await getting through the rest of the fall.  Grizzly
