Chilcotin receives large dump of snow

The snowstorm that fell in B.C. over the weekend also impacted areas in the Chilcotin

Residents in the Chilcotin were digging out more than a foot of snow that fell Saturday night and Sunday.

“We got a foot and a half,” said family nurse practitioner Patrice Gordon Monday from her home near Tatla Lake. “We sure need the snow out here to slowly seep into our parched soil.”

Glen Chelsea, a Xeni Gwet’in First Nation resident in Nemiah Valley, shared photographs on Sunday that showed the snow measuring almost 40 centimetres.

The power was also out in several areas of the Cariboo and Chilcotin on Sunday impacting around 700 customers, however, BC Hydro noted all the power was restored by Sunday evening as crews worked through the night.

Many of the outages Sunday were due to trees down on wires, likely because of wind which was blowing up to 46 kilometres an hour, with gusts up to 70 kilometres an hour at some point.
