September 10th is a good ways off.
If another front like this past one comes through next week, it's possible the fire restriction could be lifted.
Things have to get "wet" first.
I don't know how much rain St Mary got.

You're not selfish.
I have plans for Sept.8-11.
I also work in the gambling business 8)
So I'm betting conditions will be pretty good by this coming weekend.

pete :wink:


Ha! Well, I'd side with you on that bet, then. :) That said, I called the Ranger Service on another matter and they're much less optimistic about lifting the restriction and advised we "layer up". Thanks a lot :roll:
We're camping just outside of the park which follows the rules of the Reservation about fire restrictions but I have feeling they're going to do whatever NPS does.

In any case, good luck to you- I hope to see it restricted ASAP.

A Montana friend just sent me this link and I thought y'all might enjoy seeing some of the South African firefighters who were at the Loop this week.
Make sure your sound is on, and scroll down to the video 8) :

I'm not on social media so forgive me if this has already made the rounds...

I had no idea that crews were flown in from so far away!

I've seen videos of these various crews working the fires; it's pretty awesome I think.

I know it's off topic but
It just so happens, my parents took home movies of South African dancers back in 1964; the rhythm appears to still be much of the same. Who knows, some of these dancers may be grandfathers of these guys. This video is of a 1964 Bantu Dancers competition: https://youtu.be/I5flm33h5aI
