Rain, rain, blessed rain.

9/18/11 – Rain, rain, blessed rain. About 6:30 this morning, I was pleasantly awakened by the sound of rain on the roof. A steady, cool, widespread rain has been falling for several hours now. With the days ahead getting shorter, cooler and more humid, this rain should go a long way to assigning the Pagami Creek Fire to the history books. It’s sure possible that the fire could kick up again, but the odds of that happening are diminishing by the hour. Yay!
The Forest Service will be meeting tomorrow to talk about lifting some of the road, campground and wilderness entry point closures. Of course, we’ll post any changes here as soon as we hear about them.
I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who contacted us to offer help, moral support and encouragement. I also can’t begin to express my gratitude to the Forest Service, Cook County Sheriff’s department, Minnesota conservation officers, Border Patrol and everyone else who has been working so hard to keep us all safe. – Bill
