Last Week - This Week

Last weekend in the Bella Coola Valley we were suffering through a dry, cold and windy Arctic Outflow.  It dropped down to -10C and was dry and windy.  The ground was frozen hard and the crazy waterfall ice climbing people though that it was wonderful.  It felt more like a cauldron - a lot like the ice in this pool on the upper Nusatsum River.  But fortunately Arctic outflows only last a week or two and we are back to coastal conditions.  Today we hit a balmy 7 C at the Bella Coola Airport - perfect for shortening the winter up a bit.

Unfortunately our winter recreation area at East Branch in Tweedsmuir Park hasn't been getting snow either.  The cross country skiers are wishing for more.  Is this going to be the second Christmas in a row without enough snow to open the little ski hillGrizzly
