Colorado Burning

Recommended Posts

Geh! Gutwrenching to see my beloved state in flames <_< for weeks now! Lots of aircraft working feverishly and no idea if any Canadian helos or planes are here assisting at this point, but if so (or if ever!), here's an early thank you, thank you, thank you! :rolleyes: Safety all!



3 F/W airtankers and a birddog from B.C. have been down there (Colorado) for just over 3 weeks.

2 tankers and a birddog from Saskatchewan also. Not sure about helicopters though.


Alot of people up here are keeping a close eye on things and wish you folks the best.


For up to date info on specific fires and the situation in general you can go to the "Wildfire Today" website. Look for comments from folks on the site. There are some good links to other sites.


Good luck.

We always have a wildfire season, but this one's brutal! Complex mix of hot/dry weather, high winds, lightning and stupid human behavior has made this season incredibly destructive. So thankful for all the hotshots on the ground, but there is no hope like the sound of helis, tankers and slurry bombers! You guys are so awesome! And so happy the Canadians are here, too! Simply the best! :punk: You are so very much appreciated! Be safe!
