Spent the last three days stuck behind the avalanche on highway 3 , at the wonderful metropolis of Princeton B.C. No hotel or motel available . Sleeping in the vehicle at minus 20 is no fun . All highways closed , finally left and drove ten hours up to Kamloops and over to the Duffy Lake road . Not a fun drive in winter . Got to Pemberton and it was a blizzard all through Whistler to Horseshoe Bay . Meanwhile highway 3 reopened and I would have been home faster had I waited .

It was kind of fun actually. We all hung around in the holding area whining and bitching about the lack of information . The worst part was missing the Chiefs game . It sounded like a douzy . Got to listen to the fourth quarter .

It is a big snow year up in the southern interior mountains . Moyie Lake is already frozen and snow covered . Last winter it wasn’t frozen solid until mid February . If this keeps up should be a big flood danger this spring

2008 we had close to 5 feet of snow in Qualicum Beach. Raised hell with the palm trees. Then it rained, making the load on roofs rather dangerous.
Yes some winters we get hit hard on the coast but when Cranbrook radio is calling this winter snowmageddon it is lots of it . They always get lots up there , where as we sometimes do . Even in Princeton the snow is up to the deers chests three feet or so .

Could’ve been worse as you could’ve been stuck in an electric vehicle in the metropolis of Princeton (if they don’t have hotels or motels available then chances are EV charging stations are thin on the ground ) British Columbia, or in a diesel powered vehicle with a government mandated DEF/DPF Exhaust Aftertreatment System that would have plugged up & shut your truck down (and then cost you a couple thousand dollars to have it cleaned out) to keep you from idling it for those three days because freezing to death is better for the environment than you idling your truck.

Good news for climate "conservatives". . .
By Brady Dennis and
Maxine Joselow

U.S. emissions surged in 2021, putting the nation further off track from its climate targets​

U.S. greenhouse gas emissions roared back in 2021, the latest indicator that the country remains far off track from meeting President Biden’s ambitious climate change targets for the end of this decade.

A 17 percent surge in coal-fired electricity helped drive an overall increase of 6.2 percent in greenhouse gas emissions compared with the previous year, according to an analysis published Monday by the Rhodium Group. While emissions remained below pre-pandemic levels, it marked the first annual increase in reliance on the nation’s dirtiest fossil fuel since 2014, the independent research firm said.

The rise in the nation’s emissions, which many experts anticipate will continue this year, is a sign of an economy on the mend. But it also signals a potentially ominous climate reality: The United States is not yet emerging from the coronavirus pandemic with a greener economy, making it that much harder for Biden to deliver on his pledge to cut the nation’s emissions in half by 2030.

Surely you are posting in jest? Currently it is -1°C in Vancouver with the windchill. Where I am sitting right now it is been between -35°C and -50°C with the windchill for the last couple of weeks, since before Christmas and it’s now January 8.No, at the time of this posting it was snowing.

At the time I did that posting it was snowing. But now the weather has warmed up and it will be going up to 47F. All is back to normal. (y)
