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.

It's been a remarkably calm and stable stretch of weather in the Bella Coola Valley since early December. We've had a few ups and downs, a little bit of snow, a bit of east wind, and a warmer day or two. This week seems to have finally broken the steady stable freezing spell we have had. We are a couple of days into above 0C temperatures and a little bit of rain on top of it. Last night there was lots of wind which really knocks down the snow quick. It's good for the wood pile when it's stable and no east wind blowing, but we've got six more weeks until March weather arrives and winter can no longer win. Grizzly
