Post by monroe »

I wonder if we will reciprocate if our friends in Wenatchee need help?

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

We did last year; most likely will again. Lockheed Electra (Air Spray) based in Penticton few several missions to that area last year or two. Saw it again Sunday headed that direction. The U.S. contracts it on occasion when things get real bad. It doesn't take long to get there and back, not for that plane.

Saw some of the pictures of the damage, very unfortunate. It does sound like they have the upper hand on it now though.

This was a couple of years ago but it shows how things work between the U.S.A and Canada:
