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.

A mess is what the Bella Coola Valley looked like this afternoon. Last night we received +-20 cm of snow, but by mid morning in most of the lower valley it had turned to rain. The temperature persisted right around 0 C all day, even tonight, but the precipitation has been mostly heavy rain. I'm pretty sure the snow level is low, and most of the precipitation is coming down as snow at higher altitudes, because I've heard several avalanches rumbling off the mountains tonight and my satellite internet has been out for while which it does when there is heavy snow up in the atmosphere. Let's hope the weather rain warning we have is gone for tomorrow, maybe I'll be able to get a picture. Grizzly
