Didn't make it to the cabin :(  But I did work on some wainscoting for the house!

Fires are within 10 miles of our cabin now and still heading in that direction.  I am hoping the weather turns and we get more rain as that should help slow them down!

Waukonda has been hit pretty hard it appears and there are fires elsewhere but so far, this year, despite the heatwave, hasn't been as bad as it could have been!

I do hope that works out okay for you. 10 miles in these dry conditions can get eaten up too fast if the winds pick up. So far this year ee've had a good fire year and just lately even got some rain. All the best to you.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

Thanks MD!  I've seen fires travel 60 miles in a couple hours so you are 100% right!  Scary to be just ten miles away though I've seen much closer (watched the trees crown across the valley from me not much over 1/2 a mile away back in 2015.

Sure hoping this one stays north of the highway ..... guess I better check Inciweb!

Having to deal with fires every year must be draining for everyone out west, being on the east coast it is hard for me to really understand as I can barely light up a fire in my firepit most nights....

Hoping all goes well and the rains arrive!  Good luck!

Thanks bud,

In truth, pine forest burn about every 5 to 7 years naturally.  The problem, as I see it, is when man goes out and starts fires!  Sheesh!  In Cali I saw that there was arson involved in their big fires!  And back when Australia was burning?  Yup, arson (2500+ fires lit by arsonists back then) and last year in the Okanogan?  You guessed it, arson.

It's bad enough when it's dry and the lightening strikes but then some wack jobs decide to help nature along via 'fire bombs'......I'd string em up!

Anyway, I digress!  We've had a little rain so I am hopeful....and inciweb seems to indicate the fires are pushing west right now.  If they went south I'd be in trouble.

Meanwhile, I made a run to Kaloutus to do a little milling.... d*
