Perfect weather for fires, very hot, a low humidity, dry forest and wind. Another fire has now started south of Gogama. Kirkland Lake is waiting for the call to evacuate if the fire gets any closer. Rain may start next Sunday a long way off.
Here are some blueberry blossoms I seen coming back from the Osprey nest.

Yesterday afternoon we had quite a thunderstorm and shower. Most of the water was just sucked into the ground it is so dry. To the northeast there is a large fire threatening Kirkland Lake and out to the west near Gogama the fire stretches 45 km north to south (21,000 ha.) the largest in the province. Lightning strikes from yesterday will start to show in a couple of days, with no rain in sight for the week. Hopefully none around here.
