Staring at the smoke from my place just makes me hate people all that much more.

Just drove passed that fire about an hour ago before the fire trucks got there and already looked really bad. Forest fully engulfed right beside someone's home, winds were pushing my RV all over, this one will be bad!

I'm sorry, folks. I'm turning myself in to the RCMP. This fire was all my fault. I was the one who caused it by telling everyone this morning that the Okanagan has not had any mappable fires this year.
