On ‘edge of seat’ about fires

LOWELL/SYRINGA — “Fire, fire everywhere and not a drop to drink.” I am on the edge of my chair as I write this as there are 20-plus fires in and around Lowell and Syringa. If we make it through the week without evacuating we will be lucky. All major fire crews are downriver, and rightly so, Kamiah is devastated, our thoughts are with the people there. We have moved the livestock to safer ground, and once again, packed our most valued stuff. Smoke here the last few days is thick, Selway Road is closed above O’Hara and they are wrapping the lookouts including Coolwater.

Hope to report from Lowell next week, keeping my fingers crossed as we pack!
