    i know many of you have lost interest,but the death toll is at 40 now,with 300+ still missing.217000+ acres have burned so far with several fires starting to be picked up,and rain is forecast for next weekend.,they've decided not to do any mop up on several of the fires,other than the perimeter.

    The losses have been stunning. The past couple of weeks have been mind numbing. It's not that people have lost interest. More like overload.
    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    hi all,the missing number is more like 170,according to the local news today.

    more important to all of us here in the SOH,McClellan has set a new record again,and dont forget that Chico,Ukiah,Sonoma,Grass Valley,Columbia are all pumping mud on these fires.

    Also heard on the news that the CDF aircraft down in SoCal flying out of Hemet were pretty busy chasing fires.

    Passing through Auburn a week from this next Saturday! Will honk the horn as I drive through!
