TBT To the 2003 okanagan mountain park fire......just kidding, I took these last night.
Well....once again our beautiful city of Kelowna BC, Canada is up in flames. First off let me say there is something absolutely beautiful about the juxtaposition between chaos and destruction and the peacefulness of the water and sky. the colors meld together in a dance of beauty and chaos and at the same time strike fear into those of us that live here.
This happens almost every year now. however this particular spot was one that went up in flames 15 years ago, burned and grew for more than a month straight and was one of the most devastating natural disasters we have ever seen, evacuating 240 homes. This time....there is 15 years worth of dry grass and re growth to make the fire burn even faster and hotter. it grew last night from .2 to 200 hectares in under 120 minutes.
thoughts and prayers are with those who live beside us here.
