[peas four days ago ... already 6" higher]
There is plenty to write about, but not enough time to get it all down. But I was planning on getting it all down this weekend, or at least making some headway. I am now off of the call list for tours and on a very limited schedule at the kennel, because I am hoping that despite the cold, wet, fire-free summer here in the Interior, something, somewhere will burn and the firefighters putting it out will need band-aids and SAM splints.
California, of course, is burning right up. As more and more of the Fire Medics headed off to those blazes, I was beginning to wonder if my name would ever come up.
Tonight it did. I got the call right after five, and will head out to the Cub Complex in Lassen National Forest in the morning. Although I have been packed for a month, I re-packed and re-checked everything twice tonight, and will probably do it all over again in the morning.
[re-checking gear]So much for a mild Alaskan summer. California here we come.
