FIRE - Kelowna, BC, Canada

This was the view two evenings ago from our backyard in Kelowna, BC British Columbia. Three major fires have been burning here since Saturday afternoon. BC, like many other places in the west, have had little rain for some time. The forests are as dry as a bone. The risks are so high and the impact so horrible. One of the fires was in a major residential neighborhood that backs in to a forest but thankfully that one for the most part is under control. 12,000 people have been evaculated from their homes though few have been destroyed. ( Thank YOU!!) A large lake, Okanagan, is between the fires and where we have a home/farm, so no worrries in terms of safety, but I had to share this incredible photo. Read more here.
