Snow and rain contribute to reduction in fire level


Thankfully we have had some rain, not much, somewhere around 1.7 inches, but enough to reduce the feeling that everything was drying up and bring a little green to the grass. It certainly has not broken the drought but every little bit of rain is cheering. As a result of the rain the forest has changed the IFPL level to a 2. This means that some logging and firewood cutting can take place within the boundaries of the forest. Please call the ranger station for more information. A Trout Lake resident showed me pictures of the snow that fell on Forest Road 90 during the storm last week. There was only about an inch but I’m hoping that this is a good omen for the winter.
