Fire !

Mondays are always a drag, but not this week! Certainly didn’t need coffee to wake up today.

Got into the office this morning to the sound of wailing fire trucks, and from a distance the it looked like our warehouse was on fire! In fact it was the lower slopes of Mt Ashland, approx 1 mile away.
Probably some of our favorite trails going up in smoke.

With the wind blowing up things started to get quite bad, at one point there were 5 helicopters and two air tankers droping water and fire retardent on the flames.

The two air tankers flew over in line, after two scoping runs they came in and dropped the red fire retardant.

If we are slow to answer the phones later, perhaps we have retired to a safer distance.
