Welcome to "Hump Day", next to Fridays I think Wednesday is my favorite weekday...there is only 2 more days left and its the weekend.
Not much for today....the fire that started 10 KM north of Prince Albert is still burning. It is still classified as being out of control but the good news is that it doesn't seem to be growing in size. Unfortunately one family lost their home in the blaze that has been named the Nisbet Fire. These article appeared in May 18th edition of the Prince Albert Daily Herald, click HERE and HERE for the articles. Today the forecast is for a bit cooler weather +28 Celsius yesterday we hit +31 Celsius. They are saying that now that the fire is closer to being under control they can start investigating to determine the cause of the fire.
Sharon, one of my co-workers had her camera at work on Monday and was able to get some awesome photos. Head over to Rose of Sharon to see the pictures that she took from our office windows on Monday afternoon when we noticed the smoke building. It was an amazing display to watch the smoke build and build as well as see clouds of smoke rise within the huge cloud of smoke. It was amazing to watch the Bird Dog and the Water Bombers from Ministry of Environment Northern Air Operations do their part in attempt to extinguish the fire. Those pilots are very good at their job.
Happy "HUMP DAY" everyone!
