  • Wildfires in the Pacific Northwest.

    Are any of our members affected by the raging wildfires in the Pacific Northwest?

    All week we've had haze in the Flathead Valley. Yesterday the haze turned to smoke and you could look directly at the sun, which looked like a pale yellow moon. Last night the air quality went from "unhealthy" to "hazardous," which means it is not safe for anyone to breathe in for very long. Usually at this time I'd be sipping coffee on my front porch, watching the sun come up over the Swan Mountain range. Not today: Visibility is less than 1/4 mile and fine ash is covering everything.

    Thank Heaven we have no fires here. The smoke is from Oregon and CA and is flooding western MT and settling in the valleys. It is forecast to be here for at least the first half of this week.

    We've also had a huge influx of Oregon campers and trailers. The big box store parking lots are full of them. Apparently more than 500,000 folks from Oregon have been told to leave their homes. Crazy times.

      Once the fires burn out should they be less likely to burn again for a few years ? Does forest management of clearing brush help ?

        I thought once the fires burn out it leaves a lot of natural charcoal which is great for the plant life so it jump starts grass growth and becomes a vicious cycle of fires every couple of years??
