    Default Hey Mcaldwell

    Martin, I know you guys are pretty far south, but I just caught the story on Tumber Ridge and area. WOW.

    Any word on seeking extra hands like we did in 2003? Wonder if this year is going to be as bad as last time? Although there aint a whole lot up there except trees trees and more trees. (thankfully)

    Hey Rick,

    I haven't heard the call yet, but our local fire base sent some personnel in the last few days. There are 4 fires now with reportedly well over 10,000 Hectares burning around there right now, and no relief in the forecast for a while anyway.

    We have been fortunate so far here in the southeast, but our area is drying out quickly now. We had such a wet spring that we are still only seeing a moderate rating, but that will likely change by the weekend unless we get some more rain.

    I just returned from Ontario on a road trip, and we could see heavy smoke from Alberta and the Northern Saskatchewan fires as far away as Kenora, Ontario (2500+ km's).

    EEK I know where you were very well. That is incredible for that kind of visibility... although maybe not so incredible.... after all we are talking about FlatLander Country But still to see anything over 2500km is pretty bad.

    Hope all goes well for everyone concerned out there.

    I've been meaning to post about it the past 2 days, but just plain ran out of time. I'll post a few articles now for you guys to check out.

    I just caught the tail end of the news when I came home and heard that it wasn't as bad as originally thought, I'm sure I heard 35%-45% contained. But I didn't hear which fire they were talking about, so they could have been referring to Sask or the Hourglass one.

    This morning's news was that there was a call-out, for "specialists" though.

    Alberta has called in more firefighters from BC, Ontario and Quebec.
