A half dozen low alt heli passes for Carlos, the missing off duty firefighter, were just seen.

Say hey what's your name?
Chopper is back again.

Is it just Forest Falls without power still? According to the Red Cross rep at my friend's hotel, the generator/s are coming up here today and we may have power by this Friday. Guess I'm headed for the laundromat!

Spiceguy - have you had these kissing bugs in the past? I know they bite (they like to bite you in the face, ick!). Not to be alarmist but they are also known to carry Chagas disease, here is an article from the Patch, be careful!!!!

Still a little header seen on the El Dorado Fire, burning into some rocky steep terrain firefighters can access easily, so they're doing some drops. It's still burning well within the containment line(s). [Click Here]

Sep 28 : 10:35am
They are still dropping water on the El Dorado fire. Their are 3-4 helicopters assigned to the fire still working hot spots.
