I imagine your sound effects were better too. :D

I just couldn't believe how the lightning was hammering the area. It was amazing.

Anyone & everyone who's home is in or near a forested area, should try to remove any & all fuel sources around that home. i.e pine needles, easily burnable plants & grass etc... etc

Wood roof is a huge no.. no especially cedar shake shingles. impo metal roof is the way to go, yes there is metal that looks exactly like cedar shake shingles.

The radar is picking up the smoke drift from one of the similkameen fires. Could get kinda smoky here if it keeps drifting northeast.
