Very annoying.This summer we had a lot of fire and a lot of trees have been destroyed. Greetings from Bosnia, Dževad.
Not so peachy now
After a dry 3 months in our Okanagan valley, we were naive to think this late in the season - that we had escaped disaster.
No, this beautiful community lost a few homes :(
Thank~you from the Okanagan Valley in Canada.

Not selected???? What have you done to deserve that Stacy somehow you must have pissed off some folks at Google!
Oh here I have my answer to my earlier question. This looks pretty serious and although I do like a good fire (when it's under control), I would not like to be in such an area.
Do these forest fires happen often in this region?
Kind regards, Erik
We haven't spoken for a while, so first let me wish you a Happy New Year. I like this shot, it's not everyday you get to see something like this. I know that such fires are an important part of nature if they start naturally, so I just hope no one got hurt, or lost too many possessions.
Yes, i test their limits ;) we win some - lose some. This day was a little ironic in that we had just left visiting the firesite of 2003 on the East side of Okanagan Lk to come upon this active fire on the West side. They closed the road, requiring us to return South then North up the logging road we had traversed earlier in the day. We had my CJ5 ...but,not much fun for the others that had to get home that night in their grocery-getters.
We get many fires, most not noteworthy, this is the 2nd (in 10yrs)to consume homes - 4 this time.
Happy New Year! :)
They got this one under control in a day. A rather strong Easterly wind kept it from spreading into the mountains but still consumed 4 homes. Many times these fires can persist for weeks in the mountains until the onset of winter.
Best Wishes in return, stacy
A cozy barbeque that went wrong? The only positive thing with such fires is that they represent a chance for renewal for mother nature.
true, Roar. ...Some of the burn sites around here are decades old and although they may be green to the 2-3 metre hight the charred trunks are a grim reminder of what once was.
best wishes from the "sunny Okanagan Valley".
*LIKE 5 I think of the poor owners who have can be lost their houses and I hope not for the life. The fire is something impressive and dangerous.
