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.

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. Grizzly
