I only hope that the fires don't reach BC and I hope that if they do that no one is hurt. I will pray for you all in BC

i witnessed last night the most amazing electrical storm of my life. Power out, people dead...sigh...two young girls..tree fell on them because the severity of teh storm wasnt stressed...died sleeping in their tent..small town..

the lights went off but it was like the lights were still on. I'm from the bc interior, near kamloops, where there was huge fire a few years ago.

all i have to add is if we take this in combination with what pine beetle does to forests the problem could be very, very large.
time to renew my fs150 i guess.....

as i read the article, i can only think...why not just clearcut the entire space within the buffer zone between lilloet and the fires.
i know they have nuclear physicists on this but i figured i'd chime in.

I watched on the news how people were being *forcibly* evacuated from their homes, all it takes is a possible disaster and they go to the concentration camps er Kamloops. Thats where it said they were being sent. I dont know where they will stay my sister says there is a housing shortage.

I would refuse to leave my home.

my understanding of it is that any mentin of victoria is way off based, and those from lilloet are moving to kamloops, which is pretty close.
there is no housing shortage in kamloops either. pffft.
