Why is a family member escaping Bowen Island?

When we woke up yesterday (Thursday) morning, the power was off and a couple of centimeters of fresh wet snow had arrived. BC Hydro didn’t expect power to be restored until late morning, so one of my family left on the bus to the ferry and to the warmth and power of the mainland. That’s one of Bowen’s two public busses. We didn’t have power all day Thursday.

Power was eventually returned to our part of Bowen Island late this (Friday) morning. It was a cold night.

You can see the problem when you look at the trees and power-lines. The snow was very wet and heavy. It broke branches and whole trees all over the island. There has not been much wind this time.

Without electricity, the house becomes very chilly; and we don’t have good wood-burning facilities. Other than wearing lots of clothes, and performing some exercises, the main relief from the cold comes from using my little backpacking stove and a whistle-kettle Bus to ferry on Bowen Island
