Summer River?

June has been a strange month.  Mostly on the wet side, but a few of the weekends were nice and warm.  We've had many days of high humidity with thunderstorms and some lightning in the late afternoons.  June is never a month that can be relied on for good weather though.  Now the we are past the summer solstice, the pattern should become obvious soon after the long weekend on what the rest of the summer will bring.

The Bella Coola River should be well on it's way to the glacial summer flow, but it's still been influenced by a lot of snow melt and the thunderstorm activity in the headwaters and has been up and down quite a bit the last week.   Grizzly

Rose Weather

We've had several weeks of mediocre weather in the Bella Coola Valley, not a May to measure up to the standard of what is normally a good month.  Showers, sunny periods and dull cool cloudy days were the norm.  The good weather at the start of the month was the best piece.

The Nootka roses don't care though, there were in full flower last week and their strong sweet scent is always pleasant.  Grizzly
