An Easter weekend that occurs late in the year like the one we had this past weekend is a major spring cleanup weekend in the Bella Coola Valley. Yards are free of snow (in most years) and there is plenty of debris and broken trees and pruning to do. Almost every yard has a small to medium fire going and lots of raking and litter cleanup going on. With the fire seasons of 2009 and 2010 still fresh in mind, keeping a tidy zone between your buildings and the forest has become a priority for lots of homeowners.
The fire is also a nice place to sit around at the end of the day and enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done. Grizzly
