That would make me very nervous! We take fire very seriously here, 4 years ago, this whole area was ablaze with forest fires. Everyone was evacuated within a 1000 mile radius, thousands of hectares of different fires burning. Many houses lost and Livestock burned. I was in the lower mainland when this happened, my adult children evacuated our horses, I am forever grateful to them. We are only allowed slash burning during early spring with a permit. Whenever I burn a smaller slash pile, hand pulled from the large ones, which is allowed at anytime, I always see a forestry helicopter fly over, happened 3 times now. Of course I have a hose and heavy machinery right there in case. We live in the middle of dense forest.
I love your journal by the way.
