Fire Season 2006

Recommended Posts

would you guys hurry up and put out the fires.... the smoke out here in sask. vis has been about 12-15 miles I took some friends out and they were disappointed that you couldn't see for miles and miles till the horizon. if it gets any worse one might need a map to fly 20+ miles away from home :wacko: not that I want no fires, just keep some of the forest there untill I can get my helicopter license and then get into putting out the fires with you :punk:

I guess you'll have to hurry up then Jay.......We are not gonna kill the goose that lays the golden egg just because you are slow off the marks......lol

 

There will be plenty of trees to burn next year, and the next.... meanwhile, we will keep doing our bit, and Forestry can keep doing it's part....paying us to live in motel rooms and eating for free....imagine, they actually pay us for this!

Ontario is just a burn'n!!!!! Currently there is like 150 oc fires in the NW region and maybe only 50 or so are manned up. Record year for fires this year 350+, I believe. Right now in Geraldton there is 10 machines, I'll have pics for you guys later after I get time.

Well there is white stuff on the ground here in northern Bc today and its -1 with the chill at this moment.....and yet this morning an Initial attack crew came in the hangar and headed out for yet another fire..... A few hours later forestry calls to extend the contract even with the forcast for more snow for the rest of the week. Go figure :huh:
