This be how we do chores now. Inch sized ash is landing everywhere and it burns the eyes. We are 5-6 miles from one of the top priority fires in Oregon. National guard, Canada, Mexico, and various state side resources are on it. We are safe right now but I am praying for those who have new evac orders tonight. We’ve moved most of our animals to a smaller pen for precaution and set up evac resources just in case. I even have hoove shaped bruises on my legs! Thanks goats! Some might call me over reacting but I call it smart. I’m a prepper by heart that started as an ER nurse years ago. Pray for no lightning and lots of rain.

What a day! There is nothing like covering wildfires across the Okanagan. Started my day in West Kelowna speaking to residents on Evac alet. Then hit Hwy 97 to Peachland to cover the Mount Eneas and Munro Lake Fire all while getting a flat and tow back to Kelowna. To finish Friday off Knox Mountain caught fire. After a rollercoaster of emotions I finish the day thankful for safety and a job I’m blessed to be able to do everyday! #FireSeason #Okanagan #adrenaline #BCFires #Castanet
Summer gets shorter every year in Southern Oregon. 😭. I was a few minutes late, so you can barely see the sun behind the trees. And, it was raining ash on me while I took the pic.
It’s so dangerous and combustible don’t you light a match, don’t even fart!
The Windmill Fire is holding at 110 acres and 20 percent containment according to fire officials.

Halfway through hitch!
This about sums up how we feel. Just kidding, fuels reduction going strong up in the La Sals. Lucky to be leading a crew this time around, with Parker, Reid, and Billy. Highlight so far has been the DNR Fire guys that keep saying "Yes sir" to me.

With fire season in full swing this a friendly PSA to please be extremely careful. Report fires immediately and take precautions not to start any. Last year my heart (and lungs) were breaking as it seemed the entire region was going up in flames. I pray we don’t have a repeat this year. Stay safe! #Godblessfirefighters #fireseason #beautifulwashington #Tcnaturehike #uniongap
