    Hope is a nice area.
    But now that Iron Glove and Salty moved in there, they pissed all around town to mark their territory.

    That happens a lot in Abbotsford, a fair amount in Chilliwack and seldom in Hope in my limited experience. There's lots of air quality data out there the numbers tell the story. Needs to be an inversion and just the right air flow or lack of to get bad in the east Fraser Valley it seems.

    That's just to let the coyotes and bobcats know that there's limits to their allowable go zones. You have to keep at it because the bit of rain we get can wash your efforts away.

    I like McBride... close enough to PG, but far enough from it as well...

    Gorgeous area, Valemont a short drive away
    In a world rife with problems including nuclear annihilation, war, oppression, poverty, starvation and disease, how did the weather get to the top of the list?

    I didn't think it was possible to get worse than Port Alberni for rainfall and lack of sunshine, seems Hope is worse!

    Actually RJ is hating on us avg rainfall is more like 68" https://en.climate-data.org/north-am...h%20of%20rain.

    A little less than Port https://en.climate-data.org/north-am...alberni-10668/

    The summers here though have been drier and hotter than anywhere I've been on the island, realizing that PA gets nice summer spells too. Don't spread that around though the official word is Hope sucks it never stops raining

    Naw, Salty pissed on the Fraser River side, I pissed on the Coquihalla side, there's still a lot of places to piss in between.
