A blog about life in the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast area of British Columbia for anyone interested in an incredible and rich part of BC's coast. I hope to provide my thoughts about things as simple as weather observations and seasonal issues, to comments about life and the natural history in the Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and the west Chilcotin area.

Today exemplifies why I think the month of November is the worst in Bella Coola. From what was forecast as a 10-15 cm snowfall overnight, what we actually got is wet globs of snow topped with rain most of the night. The valley bottom was messy (including the roads) this morning. Heard there was up to a foot of snow on "The Hill" (Hwy 20) which will really speed up the winter activities in Tweedsmuir Park (Cross Country, Snowmobiling and Snowboard/skiing at our little ski hill). Even the usually visually appealing snowberries looked depressed in the rain today. Grizzly
