Hey Mowich The difference 1 year makes huh?
Will I need to get a couple Riders to do a flood video for you? It must be climate change induced extreme weather.
I spent 6 days in the Rockies last week. Started in Jasper and went all the way down to Good Grief Idaho. 18C was the warmest day and our last. It was snowing a couple hundred metres higher up at The ice fields at 3C at the base. Not typical for the 4th of July. It did warm up to 6.5C from Lake Louise to Radium and and 11C the rest of the way into the US.
Warmest day on the boat at Koocanusa was 18 Shitty cold on the lake so we pretty much spent 5 days below deck drinking wine and eating trout and kokanee.
I don't know why with permanent climate change drought but all the rivers were running high and there is a shitload heading to 3 oceans.
How much do you want to wager all that freshwater is going to send salinity plummeting causing regional current anomalies like how they blame climate change altering the Gulf of Mexico currents when the Mississippi is at above average outflow.
B.C.’s Chilcotin River flood affects about 120 properties: regional district
Around here 4 inches over four days means not watering the lawn and garden for a week, not floods.

WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. — The Cariboo Regional District says about 120 properties may have been affected by flooding along the Chilcotin River and its tributaries in British Columbia’s southern Interior.
District officials conducted a flyover of the huge region southwest of Williams Lake on Wednesday in order to determine the extent of flooding that occurred when more than 100 millimetres of rain swamped the area between July 5 and July 9.
Emergency officials say the flooded areas cover hundreds of kilometres, but the hardest hit regions include Big Creek, Nemaiah Valley and the Xeni Gwet’in First Nation.
The say damage to the 120 properties will vary and efforts are underway to determine how long it will take to repair washed out roads and bridges, while 20 ranchers have already reported submerged hay fields and damaged outbuildings.

The B.C. River Forecast Centre is maintaining a flood warning along the Chilcotin River southwest of Williams Lake, but its latest post says water levels have peaked at the one-in-200-year flood level.
Most of the river’s tributaries remain at flood stage, although the warning has been reduced to a high streamflow advisory for the Chilko River and Big Creek.
Water levels throughout the river system are forecast to continue receding slowly into the weekend.
Residents stranded by severed roads or bridges will be supported with food and water as required, the regional district says.
It urges affected residents to contact its emergency operations centre to discuss specific assistance.
