The state is hot, dry, and ready to burn.  While there's snow in the mountains of Montana and it's autumn many places, it's not over here yet.


  1. Oh, so terrible! We have a large fire burning east of Portland and it's sending smoke into town. Not contained at all yet.....

  2. There's not much media coverage here, just brief shots on evening news. Very sorry to hear about homes and structures. Stay safe, Knees. Hugs to you.

  3. We've been following the Meadow fire closely and now the Boles Fire. Such a loss of almost an entire town. We thought you and the helicopter might have been sent on to the Boles Fire or the new one outside Yosemite.
