It's hard to write about the weather in the Bella Coola Valley when nothing dramatic is happening. The most interesting we have had is a few cm of snow, followed by a bit of thaw and then a bit more snow. It's been a good winter, not much driveway plowing and shoveling.
The neighborhood has 5 deer hanging around, but the neighbor saw a cougar and a wolf in the yard this weekend so the deer will be feeling the pressure but with less than 10 cm of snow to worry about they have pretty good mobility. I have also been hearing reports of other cougar sightings. The coming month of February always seems to be when the young cats who are having trouble hunting wild game start picking off domestic cats and dogs...our aging Lab needs to keep her ears open!
