*watches the news and considers not watching the news anymore*
So... half of southern BC is in flames. These wildfires have covered the distance between Cranbrook and Kelowna in... what... a week? There's only that much distance again to where we are. And now Penticton is on fire, too, and the fires have already jumped two not-insignificant rivers. The fire is now "forty times the size of Stanley Park". And oh, dear - there goes the Fraser Canyon; evacuation warning on the Boston Bar, right on Hell's Gate. That's... not far from here at all. o.O
*quietly unscrews back of computer casing in preparation for yanking out harddrive and fleeing*
Yes, I am paranoid, but better that than the alternative.
Come on, rain. *crosses fingers*
There's pictures of people leading horses into Kelowna proper. :(
