River Rising

    There is still a lot of snow up on the mountaintops and as the “Heat Dome” establishes itself over the Robson Valley that snow is melting rapidly, and all of that melt water is draining into the Fraser River, causing the low lying land to flood.  The very stable high pressure system associated with the Heat Dome is causing the unusually hot temperatures to just sit in place, and that means there will be more melt water and flooding in the valley.

    You can already see the beginning of the flooding at Koeneman Park, where the river water is beginning to creep onto the lawn.  The white particles you see on the water is fluff from the willow trees.


You can look at my paintings:
