Exclamation I am going to North Dakota, tomorrow!

I have been called by my dispatch on the Tahoe National Forest to go to North Dakota to work in the Interagency Dispatch Center. I will be working there as a Support Dispatcher to assist the other dispatchers. I have been packing like crazy, paying bills, etc. all afternoon and evening. I have shipped my dog off to my parents. My flight from Reno, NV leaves at 11:30 am and I will arrive in Bismarck, ND at 9:30 pm. I hope that you all stay safe and well while I am gone. This is so exciting to go help out in another part of the country.

I'm sure they'll be glad to have you there. The upper Midwest is ripe for forest fires. Here in MN, we've got 13,000 some acres in the Boundry Waters Park area that's been burned (not sure if it is still burning). The severe storms over the last couple years that have been sweeping the Dakotas and MN have tumbled thousands of trees that are now dead and dry, and prime for fire. Great if the wood is processed and cut for a fireplace or stove, but not so good whole in the wild.

Our friends north of the border are in similar straights. I think it was a couple weeks ago or so, but a forest in Canada was burning and caused our air quality to fall, as well as turn what would have been a crystal clear day into a hazy, smokey day.
