Here is a quick synopsis of the early DNR meeting as of 8/10/07
Substantial progress has been made and they ARE excited!!
There is good weather for today
Today will start the "change out" for some of the fighting crew. They try to relieve people who have been working for 7 days. They try to do one or two at a time, providing replacements are available.
The NE and SE line has NOT MOVED IN TWO DAYS!!!!!
There is another Chinoke chopper coming in today for more water drops (as I understand it).
In 1976 the Seney fire burned 78,000 acres.
The DNR will be cutting back to 3 updates per day unless something drastic changes, so this is good news too!!!
And this has nothing to do with the fire, but just a bit of news for you.
Yesteday a woman jumped to her death from the south tower of the Mackinac Bridge. Authorities had tried to talk her "down" but she jumped the 175'. They tried to revive her but the effort was unsuccessful. This is the 2nd jumper this year. In Febrary a man jumped and his body has never been recovered.
