I always giggle when I see this picture taken while we were camping during the monsoon season in Arizona. My Husband was determined to prove to me that he could build a fire in a flooded fire pit. I have to admit he succeeded brilliantly without the aid of any type of firestarter other than matches! However.....The area around the fire was still flooded so that you couldn't really sit close enough to the fire to enjoy it! :)
Very informative video I found on You Tube with excellent tips on building a campfire in wet weather!
