Whoa! I posted that pruning thread as a joke, but that fire is no joke.
some of favorite spots in florida were ruined for months and months after a fire ripped thru- dang, hope they get it under control

It's still so 'cold' here in Southern Oregon that I had to turn on the furnace again this morning. A bleeding Forest Fire???!!!

Hi Boreal,

The Mason Tract is such a gem and a bad fire would be horrendous.

Well the cabin is fine. Looks like it was primarily south of the Mason.
Stressing cause I can't get up there till Memorial day though.
Much of that area were jackpines and ripe for a blaze anyway.

Just hope it doesn't wreck the river.

Boreal, I talked to Andy this morning; the fire didn't reach the river corridor and it's pretty much contained so the river will be fine.
