  1. The house still stands. They let us in to check on the animals. Without the dogs there 4 of the chickens and 1 of the ducks have been killed, but the sheep and pig are doing well. We hauled fresh water up from the creek and gave everyone tons of feed.

  2. Very encouraging update about our area. Sounds like they made good progress on a fire line to protect our homes.

  4. Thanks guys for the kind words. It's been said here many other times, but cancer sucks. The crazy thing is that my friend is the one cheering me up as he turns this awful diagnosis into a series of funny stories. Like going to the dentist 2 days before his diagnosis and then going back to the dentist 2 weeks after, and being asked "has there been any changes to your medical history since you're last visit?" He spun that into a hilarious story....incredibly nice, humble, amazing person...not a mean bone in his body....nobody should get cancer, but him getting this diagnosis is a screaming re

  5. Give me a snowflake reaction if you enjoy waking up to new snow falling on top of old snow (Which is actually on top of other snow). Snow.

  6. I bet Tim sits around just praying that Jesse replies to his post and when it finally happens he screams for his wife. “Honey, come in here! I’m about to get this mother******!” She slowly enters, trying to hide her tears. “Who is Jesse and why do you spend more time thinking about him than you do about me.” “You don’t understand. He likes rain.”

  7. Off topic and not exactly the hardest thing in the world to do but I have been accepted to Montana State University. They sent me an early application with no essay required and I filled it out.

  8. Hey gang I am signing in from Spokane Valley WA. My long shared dream of getting over to the East side of the state happened in August. We are living in an apartment in Spokane Valley until we can find property in Idaho and have our house built. We are looking in the Hayden to Sandpoint area for some land to build on. I am pumped to spend my first winter over here. I will report in from time to time. SUPER EXCITED!!!!!

  9. We got back home today around 4:30pm. House smells pretty terrible, but can’t complain. Smoke was not bad at all comparatively. Live look at the fading daylight.

  10. Looks like nuclear winter outside here in W. Eugene. After work yesterday we drove out to Florence, it’s only an hour from where we are staying, and the smoke was not quite as bad over there. It was ridiculously cold, I believe the high was 54. My daughter didn’t care about the cold though and played in the lake until the sun went down, my wife read a book, and I caught a limit of trout. It was nice to feel normal.

  11. Got my fist hike of the season in and was a doozy. Granite mountain about 9 miles round trip and 3800 elevation gain the first 4 miles. Was just beautiful with some of the fall colors starting up.

  13. Looks like they moved the Level 3 evacuation line back a little further. We are still a couple miles inside it, but maybe by the end of the weekend we can get in and check on things.

  14. Yeah it really sucks. But it is part of life/nature. I think it will be fascinating to watch the ecosystems recover. Views will open up, elk and deer will thrive in the clearing. Also there will be mosaic patches that survived. But I'm with you. This is my home, these are the hills and woodlands I grew up in. Right now I'm just hoping my home survives, and then probably the rest of it will sink in. We already had a conversation as a family yesterday that we will rebuild if we lose the house.

  15. Unless something unforeseen happens with the fire we will be able to stay. Back down to level 2.

  18. Not really. You have been callously pushing past any actual concern for the ongoing wildfires with your political/cold agendas ever since yesterday.

  20. That severe storm came right through here last night. Easily the most intense storm we’ve had since I’ve lived up here. Tons of hail, hail destroyed what was left of the garden. About 1.5” of rain in 30 mins.

  22. Thanks for all the well wishes. They have just downgraded to evacuation level 2. We can return if we wish, but power will not be restored until at least Friday they are saying. So we will probably not be up for good until then.

  23. Most of us want politics in the political threads. Is that too much to ask for?

  24. Not really sure. Maybe at least check things out by the end of the weekend, but most likely not until we get a little rain. The power is out too, so even when they allow us to go back I will probably just go in and try and tend the animals that were left behind. Each day that goes by I get a little more worried about them, but they had a lot of water and forage, and the pig will get into the feed in the shop if it needs to. I am pretty committed to not going back in until it drops to level 2. I do not want to do anything to get in the way of firefighting efforts up there.

  28. Our little airport here in Marshall sits on a bit of a plateau and still hit 32F last Saturday morning. I'm pretty confident that low-lying areas were sub-freezing. I've been here 18 years now and can't remember such an early explosion of color around these parts. Took these today just a couple miles south of the airport:

  30. As someone who lives in Portland let me assure you that this has absolutely not been the case since 2017. Quite the opposite. Since then, we've endured watching some historical regional snowstorms miss us and end up with cold rain or a dusting. We're due and when it happens I'm going to be EXTREMELY TOXIC about it on here

  35. 00z GFS 6hr Rainfall Totals Valid: Thursday 5-11 PM IF this transpires you'd have to believe a higher power is in the works. 00z GFS 6hr Precip 5-11 PM Thursday. Significant activity probably T-Storms dumping 1-2"+ of rain over Clackamas County, 1"+ over Marion, Linn, Lane Counties directly over the fire areas! The bulk of the rainfall remains west of the Cascade crest. If that does occur fire crews and county officials may have to contend with possible mudslides or debris flows, but if it helps extinguish fires I think they will take it. This run shows a disturbance moving u

  38. I did not intend any harm by that post that ticked so many people off. A public official was lamenting the fact they couldn't accept public donations of food for fire victims because of COVID. Why did I get attacked over that? Then of course my response was terrible also. Let's just shrug it off.

  40. Thank you. Yeah. It’s ridge running right now but it is very close I our area if it hasn’t made it there yet. Its such a monster, I don’t know how they can stop it. I was worried, but never thought it would come from that far away. Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes.

  45. Hope all are well. Those who know me know I post little during the warm season, especially with the virtually non-existent tornado season in this era. Gimme an 07-08 Nina repeat and I'd be a very happy camper. Autumn of 2007 was stormy with major tornado action in September, followed by nice mild conditions in October and some "cold rainer" systems taking the OHV track late month into November. Winter kicked-off with a bang on Dec 15th with a major S.Lakes snowstorm dumping 10-15" amounts around here. It was an extremely active if not cold season. We were just cold enough for the OHV track to
