My City Is On Fire...Literally

There are some crazy forest fires in the North West right now...some in Washington and other places in the US. Here in Canada, much of the province of BC is on fire, too. I've been living back in my hometown of Kelowna...and it's literally surrounded by fires on every side. The mountains are covered with dense, dry forest. It hasn't rained here in 4 months...and the conditions have been ripe for disaster. My Aunt's house has been incinerated and our place has been evacuated, along with the entire southern part of the city. About 300 homes are gone, along with the beautiful mountain sides. Kelowna is situated along Okanagan Lake, within BC's Okanagan of the most desirable places to live in Canada...or at least, used to be. Here are some pictures from the last few days:

Things like this only happen every 500 years. I hope things work out, and there's a reprieve with the weather.

Good luck Griffey.
