Hi all

Just got back from a weekend with my FF, step-daughter
and daughter. Had nice quality family time. Did
not’t talk about fire at all.

He’s ready to go back out, but I might blow a fuse
since he is going to fire school in Oct. for 2 weeks
and wants to go on any KY fire late in the season.
Plus the FS keeps their people in training ALL the
time. But anyway.

Question. How dose your lawn get mowed? Mine has
not’t been mowed in six weeks. Good thing you can’t
see the house from the road? :)

thanks for the weather lesson. My FF is from (of all
places) the part of Montana that is burning! Recently
he was on the Blackfoot fire just outside his
hometown. I have only begun to understand Montana
weather, it is so different from Hoosier country. I’ve
been trying to read some of the fire behavior books
and get an understand too. We watch the weather map
with a totally different perspective now.

My FF was on the Black Frog Complex early in the
season and most recently was all over the Bob Marshall
and Spotted Bear in MT (see above). My FF mostly digs
line and puts out smoke. What dose your FF do?

Most of our men and women are out west. Time to have
some spouses and SO’s over to my house for dinner!

Well all –I think he is home until Fire School in
Oct. but I’ll keep checking in with you. A good
night’s sleep to you all, happy dreams and wonderful
