Smoke in the Valley

There is a forest fire burning about 20 km from's our Valley last nite. Lots of smoke.

And...this morning. It is getting worse and worse.
We can not even see the first ridge, where normally we can see two!

The fire is burning in the bush and there are no homes in the area. The Forestry people are not fighting it right now....they are totally busy with all the other fires in the Region.

And there are a LOT of them. We had thunder and lightning on Tuesday and a lot of fires were started by the lightning.

Hopefully later today I will get more pictures up about the shop progress. As for right now, we are staying indoors because it is too smoky outside.

Don't get me wrong. But I kind of miss the fires. More the smell of them. Up In AK there was always fires way out in the middle of nowhere (Sometimes they were somewere and people/animals were in danger) Here in WI, no forest fires.

You and yours are in our prayers. I hope the fires stay away from homes.

I have been following the fire situation in BC - it breaks my heart to hear about them. So much destruction.
I hope that your little bit of paradise is never threatened in that way...
