In the last week there have been 2 instances that campfires have been abandoned without being put out. It is vitally important to put campfires out before leaving the area.Please be responsible when having campfires as it is extremely dry and it wouldn’t take much to have a bad fire season.

Forest Fire Updates

I see that we are officially into fire season.

There is one fire burning in the Cariboo district on Eagan Lake Road that is 20 hectares and is in Initial Attack Status. You can see more info on the BC Wildfire Website.

There are 4 fires in the Prince George district. More info here.

Photo Album

I’ve been playing around with another photo album. You will notice another tab labelled “Photo Album”. Both photo albums work almost identically except that the “Photo Album” gets it’s pictures from Picasa Web, a free photo service by Google.  There are a few benefits of going this route, 1) We save space on our server. 2) We save bandwidth on our server (when we get busier). 3) Anyone can email pictures directly into the photo album (if they know the secret email address). 4) All of the pictures will be consistent in size. You can do a side-by-side comparison to see what you think.

I’ve also installed a nice picture viewer called Shadowbox. When you click on a picture, it sh

adows over the page. I think it’s a nice touch.

What do you guys think?
