Sleeper stopper


Yesterday we saw both the water-carrying choppers reported as being used for the Sleeper Lake(s) fire, apparently headed for refueling at the Newberry airport. Winds today are gusty and seem to be shifting directions. It must be hell on the fireline.

    It’s odd that it seems to be difficult to find up-to-date news on the fire. I was googling yesterday morning and had to go to about the second page to find any stories more recent than about August 7th. We were never really worried that the fire would get as far as our beach but when smoke is wafting into your bedroom window as you wake up in the morning, you kind of want to know what’s going on.

    What was it that jcb was saying about reporting the other day? 🙂
