    We don’t know the full story yet. I heard a really loud bang behind me, I was standing on the opposite side of the silo on the right hand side of the pic with my back to the silos, saw grain pouring out of the bottom then the silo came down. Called the belt system to an emergency stop and ran to secure the train.

    It happened yesterday afternoon so I’m sure more info will come out soon.

    Better in and down than out and up with grain silos. Stay safe Justin.

    Took a photo of the sun a little before noon today. I am longing for very-unhealthy or unhealthy air quality these days. We haven't been down below 400 for days, and there have been pikes up over 700! (The scale only goes to 500, so the spikes are literally off the charts)

    Still, the apocalyptic gloom, ashtray smell, and toxic air is still preferable to the fear of everything burning when the winds were blowing the other day. That hot smoky wind at night felt like a doorway to hell.

    Stay safe AD, this was Kalama about 0900, and Vancouver isn’t much better.

    As bad as it is, I know it’s so much worse for those who have lost homes, towns, and loved ones. My heart goes out to those people and I’m grateful that my sore chest pales in comparison.

    I'm pretty far from any of the big fires, either Oregon or eastern Washington.
    This is Adna, WA (central western WA) yesterday at about 10 AM.

    Glad you’re out of the danger zone. I’m actually ok as well in Vancouver, but it just feels like one more 2020 kick in the nuts. Areas that have never burned since they’ve been settled are dissapearing, kind of like Australia earlier this year.

    So talking to others from the UK,seems everyone is struggling to import anything from the US.
    Kinda pants situation.
    Is the reality that they rely so much on passenger planes to move parcels that there is just not the capacity due to reduced flights?
    I give up :(

    Yeah I work outside in Vancouver, BC. I’ve been outside every day since it started and as of today I now have a sore chest. At least the temps came down because I was sweating my ass off earlier in the week.

    I’m hoping for rain soon.

    As am I!!

    Oh trust me, I’m ready for a good deluge of biblical proportions!! Knock down these fires and wash all the soot away.

    A couple of my favorite things about living are a good rain after a dry, hot summer and a dry, hot summer after a cold, rainy winter... May sound odd to some, but if grew up in the PNW you can probably relate.
