There are more than 200 forest fires in southern BC right now.
Dad and Joan don’t think they are in any danger of evacuations, but when there is a fire map shown on TV it looks like the whole southern half of the province is in flames. When I see that, I worry.
Out on the step early this morning with my notebook on my lap and my coffee mug and pot-diggin’ dog at my side, I heard a loud sqwawking above the trees to the south. It was a great blue heron trying to escape the in-flight attacks of a wee redwinged blackbird! Now there’s a sound I’d never heard before.
