It's a humbling experience watching 200ft tall firs tumble over a thousand feet and snap like matchsticks... all in pemberton.
Taken with the crackberry while hosing down the perimeter, hah.
It jumped from the far ridge...
and then engulfed the entire mountain.
The night before...
It came all the way down the hill behind the house within 30 of property line last night.
Terrifying, but beautiful at the safe time. My body hurts so bad from 18 hours of falling trees, hosing down the yard and overhanging cedars that are close to the dry BARLEY field next door, and running a few hundred pounds of hoses from barrier to house. Its too bad the forestry guys did nothing but cruise around in their truck and chew tobacco, and take photos all day/night. Once the rocks got hot it would all landslide down like a meteor shower, the sound was eerie as hell.
None of the fires are contained, and they're spreading like mad. There are no fire resources up there since they're all at the fire in whis.
