Fire and Rain in the BWCA

The USFS was able to ignite both of the burn units in the Knife Lake Area before our big rain on Monday night.  I’m not sure if they consider either of the burns 100% complete, but for now they are most likely out.  We did receive a significant amount of rain and the power was out for quite a few hours early Tuesday morning.  It makes for an interesting morning of getting kids ready for school without electricity.  Abby was excited to use a headlamp to look for her shoes.  Electricity is one thing we take for granted and alot of us become very irritated and impatient when it isn’t available.  I can’t imagine how frustrating and difficult it must be for the large number of people without electricity since Hurricane Katrina hit.  It makes me feel very grateful for everything I have, including my health.
