  1. Hi Bill,
    Where is the 747 Global SuperTanker??I can’t seem to find any news about it’s role in our Western
    fires.
    Thanks in advance

    1. The last I heard a week or so ago it was at McClellan in California and appeared to be testing and/or training. It has not been used on a fire this year.

  2. Where the hell is the wind? I cancelled my trip to the lake tomorrow because of epic wind but there’s only a cool breeze this morning.

  3. I hope the Forrest Services will close camp grounds and BLM land for camping. This is gonna bad for 4th July holiday crowd but with fireworks and possibly people making campfires it’s just common sense
