I've seen it, it flew right over my house at a hundred feet elevation. We got it for three passes on a fire a few weeks ago. The day we got it was it's first full day in service. It had made a drop north of here in the morning, then it was sent here for the afternoon. It doused that fire before it got big. It saved the day and I was pretty pleased because my shop was only two or three miles away and the fire had been heading straight for it.


C.D.F. and CalFire choppers have been flying overhead on their way north. Southern Marin District has sent several units, but the Marin City Station House has not due to the fact that the Golden Gate Recreation Area abuts where we live.

theyre finding bodies that are "ash".

thats at least like being cremated. whereas down in the caribe on puerto rico the bodies
are coming daily, now people are getting sick to death from infected water they can find
to drink.
people are committing suicide.

My friend's family is now safe as of last night. They had been evacuated on Tuesday and the fires were on 3 sides of the valley they live in. It was a really close call.
