I'm thinking defense right now. Obviously should have cleared the zone around the cottage last year but, do I sneak up and deploy sprinklers? Sprinkler on roof with timer, 2 hours a day. Leave power and pump on so the bladder tank keeps it going?


Double check your insurance policy first. Water damage from sprinklers on the roof may not be covered and you could potentially be out of pocket for any repairs.

Some rain the Chilcotin yesterday, so the danger rating might come down when today's map is released. Here's the rating for yesterday.

A Lockheed Electra working one of the two new fires to the NW of Little Fort that started yesterday. They're doing everything possible to contain these new fires ASAP to ensure the Yellowhead 5 remains open..

I heard KFC calling bird dogs to scout a new one about 45 mins ago. Didn't catch where. They used gps coordinates

Oh God, not Deadman Valley! I love that drive up to Deadman Falls and Split Rock. Viodette goldmine and so many ranches and cabins by the lakes, beautiful day drive :cry:

Deadman and Red Lake have some neat folks. I used to buy their produce at the Kamloops farmer's market.
