Why is it we don’t take these fires seriously until the wind picks up and it gets out of hand, have we not learnt yet? :-X

I love how they state "detour via..." like it's nothing

No detour West Kelowna to Summerland via Hwy 97 is 38 minutes 38.8 kms
Detour West Kelowna to Summerland via Hwy 33 is 3 hrs 28 min 270 kms
Detour West Kelowna to Summerland via Hwy 5A/Aspen Grove/Princeton is 3 hrs 7 min 281 kms

That's not a "detour" that's a Sunday drive !

Gee, does anyone think that we need a reliable alternate route North and South ??
