    Except for a 60 acre grass fire 15 mi away, we've had blue sky for the past 4 days. But I can't even walk up the street to the open space till the weekend due to red flag dry wind alerts. They've done a really good job clearing away all the grass and downfall in the eucalyptus groves near town, have re-graded the fire roads, and even train fire crews there. Plus there's an 8-lane freeway between the park and my place, which means our own neighborhood is exempt from deliberate power shutdowns during anticipated red flag conditions. Surviving being eaten by the three little wannabee mountain lions lounging in the back lawn right now is a different topic. But so far, they've been more interested in catching butterflies.

    In Fresno it all depends on which way the wind is blowing.

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Don't know why there were seemingly two different chopper pictures on that link, John. The small yellow one was obviously parked at the Mammoth airport on the backside of the range, which didn't look like a rig capable of heavy water-carrying. The owl appeared to be on a big khaki colored chopper instead.
