February, Now and Then

    These two photos show approximately the same place on the dam of my pond in February.  While different cameras were used and I was not exactly aiming them in the same direction, I think you can see the how this February (on the left) differs from the more normal February of 2016 (on the right).  Of course, every year’s weather is different, but certainly what we are getting this year is pretty extreme compared to what our February should look like.

    While a mild winter is a lot easier for us to take, the lack of snow is very troubling, considering we are already suffering under an extreme drought since last summer.  We, and all of the plants and animals that live in the Robson Valley, need snow on our mountains, in order to prevent an even more dire situation this summer.
