Heard what I first thought was the furnace kicking in, but after fully waking up, I realized it was the wind blowing like crazy. Looking outside at the trees leaning over, confirmed it. Had the box of my new old truck still up in the air from working on the transmission, so I went and let it down. Stepped outside, and man is there smoke in the air. Kind of scared me at first, cause I'd of swore it was close. Took a drive, and it must be coming from a long ways off. I don't know if there are still fires burning in Montana or not, or if it is something closer. Sure gives a person an uneasy feeling. I'm probably done sleeping for the night now. Darrel

Ya I wish you'd keep that wind over on your half of the state. By the time I took kids to school it was so windy I'm beginning to worry about the top half of a grain bin I have strapped to the trailer out in the yard. It least if it gets away it'll blow into the south tree row

Went to INCIWeb and saw two active fires outside Missoula along eastern edge of Bitterroot's Range, there are active fires all along the eastern Cascade range WA and OR.

Very strong winds up to +90 mph with lightning here late yesterday afternoon and all night.  Started a lot of grass fires in southern Alberta and into Saskatchewan. That may be where the smoke is coming from.

My daughter who lives in southern Alberta has been sending information to us about the extremely high winds and fires burning in the area where she lives. Nothing burning close by but all it takes is one idiot throwing out a cigarette while driving down the road to change that.

Darrel....if you are working on that truck with the box raised, make sure you put a post in there under the box to hold it up in case a hyd line bursts. that old of a truck, it could very easy, and they come down FAST! we've lost several nice people around here pinning them between the box and the frame. I wanna come up there to see you someday, but I want you alive when I do!

Radio news is sayin' at least four farms burned out in Cypress Hills area and a lot of cattle burned.  Fortunately, the high winds have died down some.  Still one fire out of control in Crowsnest pass area.

Wind woke me up about 3 this morning too. But I sleep like I am dead so I didn't think much of it and just rolled over and went back to sleep! Struggled to keep the pickup on the road on the way to work though!

Had 65 MPH winds here last Saturday but with nearly 4" of moisture in the last couple weeks, fire isn't a concern, right now.  Supposed to continue to be in the 70's and 80's for the next week or more, finally nice weather!

I couldn't believe the bin stayed mostly round as it rolled all that way, usually they flatten out before that.
