A Lull In The Fire Season

fire-sign-high

Two recent fires have been controlled now and are no longer considered active.  The Y Fire, reported Sunday, was held at 1/10 of an acre in the Greys River area and was controlled by Tuesday.  The Pilgrim Fire in the Pilgrim Creek Drainage just north of Grand Teton National Park, also reported Sunday, was kept to less than ¼ acre.   Both of the fires were lightning caused.  Fire officials say after the lightning produced in the thunderstorms that came through the area early in the week, they are watching to see if any “sleeper” fires emerge as the weather dries and warms.  Already last night, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS units from Hoback Junction and crews from Teton Interagency Fire were called to a single tree that was torching with flames estimated at 20-feet high just above the Dog Creek Work Center in Hoback Canyon.  That fire is believed to have resulted from Sunday’s lighting storm.  At this time, fire restrictions remain in place throughout Teton County, Bridger Teton National Forest and Grand Teton National Park.

On defense, the Cowboys top priority is to stop the run.  With a talented quarterback […]
  • Warmer Temperatures With Isolated Thunderstorms Expected Today - August 29, 2014
    A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region today, which will allow temperatures to become warmer and closer to average statewide.  However, some lingering low-level moisture and daytime heating could trigger a few hit or miss thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours.  Gusty winds and lots of lightning will be […]
  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
