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.

Perpetual Pacific storms seems to be the weather pattern we are locked into. There just doesn't seem to be a break or Arctic ridge in sight to give us more 'traditional' winter weather. Today brought more or less steady rain to the Bella Coola Valley and the same 1 to 3 C temperatures. La Nina conditions in the North Pacific hopefully explain the present relentless onslaught of system after system of wet Pacific weather. If we had of been getting snow, in the last month of precipitation I wouldn't be writing this blog because my satellite internet dish would have long ago disappeared under the metres of snow! The picture today was the best I could get....Grizzly
