Hi guys,
I also have checked the list a couple of times thru the winter but no one was around soooo I figured everyone was busy and some in treatment, etc. Seems like we had a rash of cancer treatments but am so glad to hear from a couple of people are doing really well. I now am doing great and all tests come back with very good news.

My guys and gals are all busy, there was a fire in Montana but as they were getting gear and trucks ready it rained so they were cancelled. I don’t think it had gone to “project fire” level but we are so close they do mutual aid sometimes.

We also had a real tragedy a week ago with the murder of a mom, her 13 yr old son and her finance. There are two children missing an 8 yr old girl and her 10 yr old brother. So a couple of my kids and my husband have been doing standby’s etc. Look on the Kootenai County Sheriff web page to get their pictures and send them to anyone you can.

It is not looking good around the northwest as far as burn expectations. We have had very little snow and less rain. The creeks and lakes are very low….lots of stranded boats. So the predictions are lots of fires and some major work. So it is a catch 22, I want my family to work but don’t like to see the damage…..the Firesafe program has really been successful up here and hopefully that will help with property damage. Anyway, I am going to read some on my book today. Hope everyone will come back on the list soon and we have a safe, healthy summer. glad to be back and hope to hear from all our Family and new people please write in……we really are a blast when we get going.
