High and Angry

Those markings on my rain gauge are in inches, not centimetres!  An inch and half of rain in18 hours on top of the winter snow pack has brought the Bella Coola and all the tributaries to the 'high and angry' stage.  Still below it's banks but lots fresh debris moving through and muddy water.   A good rainstorm for June for sure along with snow melt, but hopefully that's all we get out of it and it stays at high spring runoff condition.  Spring floods are not something in the lore of Bella Coola River like our fall events.

  1. We've had some rain, but not that much at once. At least I haven't had to water my garden yet. - Margy
