Wow. What a way to start off the winter. It has been a crazy time in BC. We started off with a huge snow storm a few days ago dumping about 2 feet of snow if not more here at Vagabond Lodge. See video. Up to now, we had a small amount of snow at the base and about 70cms at the top but it was staying pretty warm here. And then it hit big time with over 60cms at the top but it began to rain at the base for most of yesterday which made it a pretty major mess.
We got away lucky in our area. Some parts of the area lost power for over 24 hours. We didn't. And all roads have been shut down throughout the province due to flooding and washed out roads. I am not sure how long it will take to get things repaired. It may be awhile. A lot of people have been evacuated from their homes due to flooding and many will be homeless for a long time. Very sad.
The weather has cooled off and no snow or rain and from the looks of the forecast we will be getting more snow.
