I was surprised to hear and see a number of the big Erikson helitankers flying by in the late morning. Although with the number of fires in San Gabriel Canyon in the past few years, fuel load isn't what it used to be, it's nice to see officials not tinkering around with fires but hitting them hard at a the beginning.

We saw the aircraft this morning shortly before 10 AM, but knew nothing of the fire until we drove down the hill to go to Target. Looked for info on the TV news (Ch. 9) after we got home, but not a word about it, at least during the first 45 minutes of the broadcast. Thanks to the Patch, we finally found out what was going on!!
