Campbell Mountain Fire (British Columbia) July 2014

I have a couple of irons in the fire so to speak, and am not quite ready to post on either at the moment. I have recently been reading women in the United States and Great Britain who flew aircraft during World War II in service to their country as civilians. I am not ready to post about this at the moment, but those articles will be coming in a few weeks, depending on how the spring fire season in New Jersey develops.

Just today, I got interested in some of the nuances of fire weather forecasts in the United States, I am still reading and learning, As we are in or near the spring fire season in New Jersey, I hope to have something to say about this sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, here is a nice video with footage (including helos with buckets and an air tanker) working the Campbell Mountain Fire in British Columbia, Canada in July 2013. Enjoy.
