4 Fire Boss planes are flying a circuit between the fire and Okanagan Lake. They are flying low over my house. Isn't there a bylaw against this? [icon_lol2.gif] LOL JK

They are flying right over my house too. Sounds like a war zone.

Those skimmer planes seem remarkably effective.

Castanet and other local sites have to wait for updates. If they haven't received any, no sense repeating the same thing over and over.
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.

The planes stopped a couple of hours ago. Can we assume its contained?
