You have no idea how badly I want to fly with the water bombers, either the airplane OR helicopter. I could get some truly amazing photos. Please don't get me wrong, I am not happy about these tragic circumstances, but what an opportunity that would be. I've always wanted to fly with the Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds....I just have to be happy with BIG roller coasters.
It is very smoky right now and we think it is because the wind has died down, which is good news. The smoke can be a problem for anyone that might have to travel through it so that might be an issue as to if they keep CR 407 open. And that is just MY thoughts, this isn't any information that anyone has given me. The wind is supposed to be southerly tomorrow; keep your fingers crossed. I haven't had an update as to how much head way has been made yet, but at least I haven't seen them bringing back equipment from out north like they did yesterday around this time. I guess things got pretty hairy out that way for a while yesterday.
If I receive further, CONCRETE info, I will be back later.
