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.

February is a hard to predict weather month in Bella Coola, some years it can bring a lot of snow, other years some nice weather. So far we have not had significant snow, what we had was the easy come - easy go style of snow. Last night brought valley bottom rainfall in good quantities and lots of mountain snow. Now Environment Canada is forecasting the return of cold weather later this week. Once we hit March my strategy is to ignore the snow that falls by not plowing the driveway because you know winters days are numbered, but we aren't quite there yet. Grizzly
