Betty MacDonald had her bad experienes with fire.
Can you remember what Betty MacDonald
mentioned in ' The Egg and I ' about this subject?
Even with the continual rain, July, August, September and even October were bad fire months in the mountains. If you were unfortunate enough to live on a ranch near the Kettles, any month was dangerous. It was said that the Kettles set the original peat fires in the valleys and that one summer, Paw, to save himself the effort of mowing the lawn, set fire to the grass and burned off the front porch. The Kettles burned brush any old time of year and if the brush fire got away from them and burned five or ten acres of someone's timber, that was too bad. Betty MacDonald in The Egg and I
The situation in Pacific Northwest is very sad and
tragic at the current time.
Let's hope that it'll change very soon.
