    I really feel sorry for the people of BC right now. Hopefully you guys will get a lot of rain soon hoping that will help the firefighters.
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    So, you find this humerous, Jake? You're a sick puppy! My brother's family live in Kelowna and have been forced to evacuate to safety along with thousands of other residents to wait it out and hope that they'll have homes to return to .. I'm not laughing.

    Very sad news .. I understand that the revised total is something like 244 homes. I've had news that my bros home is still standing with a neighbor's too but all of the ones from there on down the street were flattened. They consider themselves pretty blessed. Take care, Tombfyre!
