After the ski resorts close. Ha!
Dunno about the North, but S Ops has authorized hiring starting 4/15. What with the new directive, fuels crews/nat. guard projects, that doesn’t necessarily mean they will be on an engine. Will see.

With the rain still falling as we approach mid April I think it is unlikely that we will see the bottoms of the drainages cure out before mid to late July. Also all the small creeks in the drainages have had water flowing that cuts out a bit of a line. Unless we have unusually dry windy weather in June and July it is likely fires will have a difficult time crossing the lower areas of the drainages or will provide ample opportunity for suppression. This is before we get to the live FM in Brush and timber understory. I urge everyone to hold off on these predictions for another 6 to 10 weeks. At this point it is way to early to make such predictions. Plan for the worst and hope for the best. But most important stay safe all of the time regardless of conditions.
