Mt. Cheam: beeyooteefull…

One thing I’ve always found amusing is that everyone I know who lives in Chilliwack can’t help talking about two things at this time of the year:  Mount Cheam and the snow level.  As we near the winter solstice, the snow level on the local mountains creeps down.  This makes sense – the mountains are tall and when it’s below 5 degrees in the valley (where I live), it’s below zero on the mountains (these temperatures are in Celsius, for my American friends).  Thus, there is snow on the mountains and as the temperature drops so does the snow level.  Yet, there are few people in Chilliwack who don’t take the time to point out that the snow level is dropping.

  2. I love the mountains…LOVE them. Feel so blessed to live in this corner of the earth…surrounded by lots of moutains. We can see the north shore mountains from our livingroom window. The view never gets old.
