Update:  Could there be a better picture than this one after the week of rain?

A perfect friday morning after the storm

That sound you hear is the collective exhaling of the Alberni Valley after holding its breath and working its collective butt off helping those in need.  What an amazing and wonderful effort by Tseshaht and all community members to help heir neighbours in need!

I will have a combined recap of the weeks weather with the now long delayed November summary later today.  There is lots of data to compile but I have no doubt there will have been records broken.

The storm also exposed a few bugs in my weather site that I am now fixing.

Once the clouds clear today the weekend looks fine.  There will be a weak system that will come through on Monday, but nothing like what we’ve seen this week.

A front approaches for Monday morning.

Be back soon.  Stay dry everyone!
