The Okanagan Mountain Fire in Kelowna has spread overnight. It is heading right for another subdivision.
Please...everyone...pray for heavy rain in BC.

It has been raining for about 2 hours here near Spokane as I write this and is supposed to continue through the night. We may actually get enough to do some good--it has been tinder dry.

The forcast is for clouds with the possibility of rain for the next few days and also much cooler temperatures. We tied the record high yesterday and it has been real hot for the kids back to school.

Hope you folks get some of the moisture. It has to have been a very scary summer. I hope the fire danger will soon be better.....Good luck, neighbors!

Lightning last night several small fires got those out. A old fire just blew up went from 500 acres to 10,000 in 2 days and still going strong tonight in the high winds. We are also having Red Flag weather and more lightning tonight. I have my fingers crossed with the 30+ mph winds we are having and no real rain with it. Glad the fair is over so we can be home more and all the animals are back safe and sound in the bare pastures for fire reasons. Mark H.

these fires shouldn,t be bothering him, but it,s so dry everywhere out here now anything could trigger a disaster, marks area isn,t far from us and we all been getting pretty much the same weather hot and dry for way to long.he,s probably all wrapped up in that new project of his,the new truck turing it into a water tanker.

its switched direction now an headin for joe rich, resort at kamloops been evac. too and the folks at lyton(sp) are on evac alert, cranbrook area in bad shape still and a bad fire just north of creston , we went down to the pass yesterday and i heard the lost creek fire jumped the guard but they are ok still at this time, everybody real worried a cold front is approaching high winds and not much rain but lightning expected, situtation just seems to be goin from bad to worse around southern B.C.nobody has ever seen it like this, i toured part of the line in cranbrook on friday , firefighters are doing a remarkable job in the worst of conditions, but the one good thing is they are learning alot and using new procedures some of which have never been tried before , .fires are jumping 2.5 km ahead of the main fires , fire balls rolling across large lakes, just unbeliveable.
