well he is likely somewhere on the north shore

and those north shore mountain ice caps cool his heat and mask his activity level 

we know rupert has no snow or ice

just constant., persistent, eternal rain (which is not effective at heat masking)

oh, and btw, have you evolved enough yet to have webbing between your toes and fingers?

 

Too late for me....maybe my kids....

yeah except the snow during that event

was liquified in rupert

a good day in rupert is when the clouds part enough

so the sun can shine in to bounce off the rain droplets

:P

 

ok i'm being extreme

but i was forced to fly up there

when the airlines were on strike

and had to locate some smallish airline that flew a few of us up there in a snowstorm

an unhappy memory

sorry rupertbo and chon.. nothing personal against people who live up there

i do hear it is a preferred location for those who suffer from sun related reactions

This is actually true. Several years ago, a family from South Africa immigrated here, because the father and all of the children suffered from Porphyria

Not sure when that was, I worked in Terrace from summer 81 to summer 84.  One week during one of those winters it snowed 4+ feet over just over 24 hours.  It was the craziest thing I'd ever seen, and I grew up in NE BC.  Some of the strip malls were buried because of the snow and drifting.  It can definitely snow in that country....and rain LOL!  I was lucky in that I never had to be rerouted to Pr Rupert flying into Terrace.  Did however have to be rerouted to Grande Prairie when flying into Dawson Creek.  Gripped the armrests pretty tight on that flight, loud cracking outside, told by the flight attendant that it was just ice breaking free from the wings.  I guess that was better than ice not breaking free, but it was nervewracking and made the landing in Grande Prairie and the bus ride back a happy ending.

yep

i knew that

which is why i posted that info

 

there are very few places in the entire world

that are more or less safe from the sun

and rupert is one of them

 

sucks for companies that sell sun screen up there though

 

ps... my superficial knowledge of a vast variety of topics could fill a large library with very thin books :frantic:
