Looking north out my window in Westbank I see nothing. Maybe it is from Gormans Mill? They were producing lots of smoke yesterday.

Funny how sensitive we have become. I notice that I am often looking in the hills or spinning around when I hear a helicopter or low flying plane.

There has been at least one plane on it for a half hour now. Watched it from my house, does two or three circles then drops a load, goes away comes back more circles.....

Judging by the picture castanet posted it looks quite small. I'm sure they'll knock it down quickly.

Is this the same one they were talking about on CBC Daybreak around 5:30 this morning?
