White Plumes Rebuild 

White Plume's New Shelter
The White Plume's New Shelter

Alex White Plume, his family, and friends have been hard at work rebuilding after the devastating fire. Alex cleared away the rubble with a borrowed skid-steer and is building a shelter that will serve as an office after they build a new house in the spring. It is cold in South Dakota in the winter. Alex wrote me a couple of weeks ago "I appreciate all my friends that helped me during my loss. I am building a stick frame house to finish out the winter. It was 19 below last night."

Matt Rankin has posted three updates on the original post White Plume Home Burns To Ground over the past few weeks. Yesterday afternoon Matt sent along a brief update saying that the rebuilding is going well and that the family will be moved in within a week. He also sent along the two pictures above and below (please click on the images for larger versions).

Tom - my name is Waylon Pretends Eagle and I am writing to inquire as to republishing excerpts of this post in a story I am working on.

I spoke briefly earlier today with Debra but I have yet to get some comments directly from Alex. My deadline is fast approaching and your help would be greatly appreciated and cited. . . Feel free to get back in touch with me ASAP.

Please email me at hempreport@mac.com and I'd be happy to talk about republishing excerpts.
