The power came back on just as I was headed out the door. Site is updating normally.

Around 1300 other BCHydro customers in Port Alberni have been affected as well.

Current Conditions will not be updating until the power comes back on. BC Hydro says 8:30AM. I haven’t checked the batteries in my weather station for a year or two, hopefully they last that long.

The rain will continue today and tomorrow. It will be heavier tomorrow than today. It’s also cold enough for snow to fall in Sutton Pass and other localities so watch for that. Apparently there is black ice in Nanaimo.

It’s going to get below freezing for all of us on the weekend, more chances of snow on Sunday.

There will also be a chance for another bout of wind on Tuesday afternoon.
