Wife said its the yukon creek and the gold hub fires. 

As far as safe i think so...? I have a 3" trash pump i can dip in the river behind us...and 200ft of hose. 

Ive been listening in on radio activity and have heard some frightening msgs. I havnt inquired on the radio as im not licensed. "The line is out of control" bunch of coded msgs. Calls for air drop and such.

The wind kicked up again and blew a lot of smoke away...but still seeing flecks of ash. I reckon the wind is good for blowing the smoke away but also bad for fanning the fire.

I was talking with my brother last night, about 6:00 your time, and he said he could hear thunder all around him. It started pouring rain before we got off the phone. He’s in North Pole.

Yep, we got a pretty good thunderstorm come through, for us anyway.  Lots of thunder and lightning, and one big strike very close. It rattled the house, lights flickered, and my FIL on the other side of the hill lost his Internet. Later reports of 1” hail on the west side of town were reported.  
We got 0.21” of rain on my gauge, I think others like @Twolines go more, the airport only reported .004” for a grand total this month of 0.57”.  Now the weather shows a cooling off with more showers, much better

Ya i think wife said we got 3" of rain?....it was a lot either way. We have some sink hole issues around our porch...cuz u know grade every driveway straight to the porch..lol i dug a french drain around the porch that drains to a basin to be pumped out...the drain worked like a charm but couldnt pump the basin with no power. I will be prepared tonight tho, they say we'll get it again around 5. 

We did get power back around 4am.

No complaints here really tho, we need the rain. It does this every year since weve been here..just usually waits til august.

RRR we have a friend in north pole.. he said it was pretty bad there too.

To quote Ms. Greta, "HOW DARE YOU"!  by pointing out something that the climate change activists vehemently deny.

Not sure about the tractor...i know there are several smaller hay fields around. Next year we'll be doing an ag equipment show and swap meet at the farmers market, i hope to see it there.  We'll have a segmant for farm trucks too! Lol
