It's over (kind of)

Fire seasons used to have a beginning and end. You could count on taking a break and hanging up your boots for a solid few months every year.

That's not the case anymore. There are fires somewhere all year round. If I wanted to, I could be on assignment every month. Fire seasons have become fire years.

That being said, it's pretty much over up here next to Canada. Days are shorter and nights are colder. Also, it snowed!

The helicopter is off contract. The minions are drifting away to wherever they spend the winter. The paperwork and cleanup season has begun.

It's time for a break.


  1. I hope you have a good, long, fun break. And thank you for your work during the fire "years." Love, Ant

    1. Thanks! Now it's time for all the meetings and hiring for next year!

    2. Probably not. Still a ton of work to do. And, there was a fire today.

  2. I'm sure its a relief to have made it through another fire season. Time for some R 'n R.

  3. Even though you’ll be busy with administrative duties...enjoy the break in the madness of active fire season and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you (that I’m so jealous of!!)


I try to answer all comments, so comment away!
