Rain in Ely?

5 posts in this topic

Did you guys in Ely get some rain this week? Any info on the campfire/charcoal grill ban? I'm just planning my meals for the long weekend. Thanks in advance.

We got .1 or .25 two nights ago and from .75 to 1.0 last night. I haven't heard any updates on the fire ban.

You can check out the MN DNR's website about the fire ban. There should definately be a link on there that will give you an update on the fire restrictions. Smokey the Bear still says "Extreme" fire danger today on my way to work, so I am speculating the ban hasn't been lifted yet.

Later,

Justin

The forest service website still has a ban on all open flames including charcoal. We still need a lot more rain to get that sucker lifted.

Yeah, we will need a couple more inches for them to lift it completely. All we had was .67 inches in Ely. A day or two more w/o rain and were right back in fire danger.

      Took my daughter fishing today. Not unusual. She's 18 and has fished with dad since she was a baby. What was unusual was her boyfriend came with us. She grew up fast. Glad it's still cool to hang with her dad. Brought home a pile of crappies to boot. All had fun.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.
