While places south of McBride, like BC’s Okanagan which is a fairly dry place are getting above normal snowfalls, we haven’t had a decent snowfall in weeks. There is only about 6 inches (15cm) of the white stuff on the ground. The photo shows an area below my pond where the deer have easily scooted snow away to get down to the grass. Yesterday I walked around the bush in my winter boots. Normally I would need snowshoes.
While the snowfall is way behind schedule, our temperatures have been fairly normal for this time of year with highs about -6C (21F) and nighttime lows -15C (5F)
