Hey guys…..just a note to let ya know I am still here. My husband and I took a trip up to Canada this week-end. Scenery was awesome and the weather was wonderful, for us, not the fires. We went up to the Banff National Park then around to Glacier and back down thru the park
We saw two of the big fires going up there, the Pritchard on the west side of Banff and then the Moose Fire at Lake McDonald west of Glacier. We were able to watch the Moose fire Sunday pm as we traveled west, it started as a smokey haze and the closer we got it started obviously building until it was making it’s own weather clouds…..awesome. Hope the pictures turn out. If so I will share with the list….
We watched the special last night, taped it if anyone needs copies…..I am getting together infor for the news interview abt the shelters…..we are so sorry to hear abt the pilots getting killed and then another death of one of the FF on the ground. It’s been a very sad, worrisome year. There is a beautiful pin from one of the catalogs that shows purple ribbons with flames that is in memory of the fallen FF, if anyone is interested let me know and I will post the address. Got to get busy on the interview stuff….keep in touch and let us know the news when you hear it from your FF…..
