I was just online browsing for images of this crazy hail storm on highway 22 when I found this other link and then another link. In the second link I found some really good information that I feel compelled to share. The same author who wrote Precious Cargo has written a new novel titled The Saturday Night Ghost Club and it comes out this August. Well, look how things turned around there! From hail to a new Davidson book. Things are look up!
I imagine the propane fire pits are flying off the shelf.
From City of Fernie’s website:
Campfire Ban Effective July 26
July 26, 2018
Effective on July 26, 2018 at 1 PM a Campfire Ban for the region including the City of Fernie and area. This campfire ban will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.
The Southeast Fire Centre is currently experiencing hot and dry conditions. The fire danger rating is “moderate” in some areas, with larger areas rated “high” and “extreme”. Forest fuels are drying out quickly, and hot weather and dry lightning are in the forecast. It is crucial to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires, so the BC Wildfire Service can deal with any naturally occurring fires that start in the region.
This prohibition applies to all public and private land unless specified otherwise – for example, in a local government bylaw. Please check with local government authorities for any other restrictions before lighting any fire. Read more here.

The guitar, his voice, it’s getting me right deep in my bones. May you have music that does the same to you, as art in all its forms is so important. Where would we be without art.
Have a wonderful day.
August 25th, 11-5 pm at the Fernie Bike Park. Get there early if you want to see the event because this is a packed show. More event info here.
When you don’t blog for a couple weeks you fall out of tune with the community. The Fernie Heritage Library is almost in their closure and at the pool on Friday I noticed a little sign about their closure from August 19th – September 16th, 2018.
I’ve stopped posting on Small Town Social for a while and, truthfully, it felt good. I loved not having the blog at the back of my mind, always filing away information. A mini vacation was required.
I guess I’ll continue writing posts and searching out good Fernie information to share but this unsure feeling I have, I imagine it’s what it might feel like to be a radio host. You’re speaking but not quite sure anyone’s actually listening – except you, Thomas, you’ve been the most loyal to STS.
May the blogging continue!
