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 colleague asked me this week if I had been bitten by any of those overwintering big slow dumb mosquitoes (they lumber along like a loaded Airbus, and are easy to swat), that show up before the snow is even gone. I told her that I had not but I hadn't been in the woods much yet. I was wrong, because with the warm temperatures today at 16 C, my crowd of big slow dumb mosquitoes was out and after me tonight when I was outside. I've learned this particular crop doesn't seem too mean much for the up coming summer as they seem to be more residual from last year. Grizzly
