Inversion & Smoke Slow Fire Growth

North Buffalo 08-31

The North Buffalo Fire, north of Buffalo Valley near Moran, continued to progress in the Soda Fork and North Buffalo Fork drainages yesterday, but not as quickly as over recent days.  That decrease in fire activity was due to an inversion that remained in place for most of the morning, and significant cloud cover over the fire area.  Firefighters continue their work to secure the southwestern flank with hand  line and aircraft in order to assure it does not back into populated areas.  Currently, the fire is estimated to involve 13,727 acres.  Further north, smoke caused poor visibility forcing Yellowstone National Park to close the road between Norris Junction and Canyon.  With an increase in fire activity, the Cygnet Fire is now estimated to involve 1700 acres.

Things like, “If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn’t strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, […]
  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
