I worry about you up there in the middle of that fire situation. I, of course, will pray for rain. I would even do a rain dance if I knew one.
I am so sorry this is happening and I cannot imagine the devestation the fire is causing.
Please be careful.................and take care.
Love ya up there.
No that was a fire that was started by a friend of my wife and burned 68 acres
This one is a new one and now is up to 20,000 acres. This whole area is in the hot zone for fires with all the dead trees we have here
Check it out under Caribou hills fire
I am sure glad that Lyn will do the rain dance.............I am French and a wee bit Norwegian so all I can do is pray that the fire is soon under control and does not harm you in any way.
I know how important the conservation of your forests means to all of you.
God Bless and know I care.
Lyn did you stop dancing as the rain has stopped from last night and the sky is clearing up again
The fire is still out of control, we got more rain today but the fire is to hot and there not telling us much right now. It's almost like they don't want us to know or worry anyone if it go's around the lake I don't think they will be able to stop it in time for a lot of ppl.
Plus that and theres only one road out of here to Anchorage and the fire will burn right though it and to make matters worst were getting more hot weather coming and high winds.
Thanks Lyn and your Elders and all
I'm not sure what to say, as there still not telling us much but the fire planes are now flying over us but I see little smoke in the air but it is only 10% contained and they keep moving the fire meetings closer to us now, and we got a few C1-215's belly scoopers from Canada and some DC6's flying by now and we got fire crews coming from the lower 48 to help, that's really all I know right now other then 88 cabins and homes have been burned
Update; just walked outside and the smell of smoke is in the air and getting hazy now

I can't dance but I am praying for the much needed rain.
Well it's sunny and getting hot but from what I been told it's 50 percent contained and is burning low in the ground right now and not much smoke from it now but there saying that if the winds kick back up it could get nasty again but so far so good for now
That is great news, good to hear a positive report. I am sure it is Lyn's dancing that is doing the trick.
