Went for a bike ride and took a picture of this indicator of fire season severity. I'd say there is about a third of their inventory here. We have a bit to go yet.

I think this is the Muckamuck fire unless another one started up. It's rained a bit in some places but here in the valley it is just overcast, cool and the air is not smoky.

Watched all three of these take off. They were headed east to the Colville Reservation. Those folks have been hammered by fires this summer

A column popped up north of Mt Rainier this afternoon and we're not sure how alarmed to be by it. No news from other agencies so it may be that the Schneider Springs fire near Cle Elum blew up but Not sure yet.

Had one start and get big about 17 miles from here. Reached 600 acres in four hours. Pretty big cloud over that thing. Got a friend in the path of it, he's out of power so we got a generator to him, that will keep his well going for his livestock. He has a pond near his house and a gas pump. Area around the house is fields and pretty clear and they keep the yard watered. He'll be pushing back the stubble tonight with the cat and laying out his hoses. Hopefully they stop it tonight when it gets to the flat ground and reaches the fire lines the farmers have been plowing all afternoon.

Another friend heading up to help him with a water truck. That truck just left another fire south of town. No rest till it rains.

We've got a new fire near the town of big creek in the creek near camp Sierra.

I didn’t know about this thread until now, I took this picture September 5th at Cutt’s Meadow. I was there for High Sierra 4WD Poker Run.

The fire got within about three miles of my mountain place. I thought for sure it was going to overrun the place, but stalled five miles short after running twelve miles that day.
