After Labor day, good idea. I'll have to take the Dial-A Ride wheelchair equip van but i'll do it, can't get in and out of a regular vehicle. Have sorely missed the picnic. It is a unique informal way for SCM to meet, pseudonyms become REAL PEOPLE, wow is that scary?

This year we will plan a get together! So sorry we have missed the last few years. The lull in them was mainly caused by me as I dealt with the slow passing of both my parents. Usually we have rented Meadow Park (the shelter) and done a potluck style event with SCM providing a main course, sodas, etc. I am open to any other suggestions from all of you as this is your event and I admit, I love meeting all the faces behind the names. With all the new member since the last picnic, it should be a real blast! We have traditionally done it in late July or Early August but I would like to get some suggestions as to dates that work for most folks as I am pretty flexible. Glad this thread god resurrected! Thanks you guys! -Craig

Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

Sorry to hear about your parents. My mom has been battling cancer for 1 1/2 years.

Charlie Fire is now 3000 acres with 10% containment. 20-30 homes evacuated with about 100 structures threatened.

According to FlightRadar 24, the N40Y plane (Night Air Attack) is over the Charlie fire. This same plane has been the air attack over every fire at night that I can remember this year. God Bless him! Goat, I need your incredibly talented updates but by what I see, this Charlie fire is expanding rapidly.

Sep 22 : 07:24pm
Thank you everyone for the info. Now let's pray for these firefighters.

Great ISS sighting tonight DelJ! Thanks for the Intel! Looked like it came out of the due south west and then turned to the nearly due east. I guess the earth is round!

Thanks MGJ! Most of what I say usually just blows on by... (not that I have a problem with that)

Thanks MGJ! I see Tanker 914 coming into that area now on FlightRadar. He is the DC10. I don't see any other aircraft on FlightRadar. Hopefully he will do some good!

They just ordered mandatory evacuations for all of San Francisquito Canyon Rd from Lowridge Pl in Saugus north to Camp 14.

Thanks John for the updates on Charlie. Any nearby communities in harm's way?

Sep 22 : 05:13pm
Quakes. You are giving away your location! Now we know you live near unknown access road lol

I'm hearing sirens - must be the response to the reported traumatic injury. It sounds like somebody got hurt really bad.

This closure also screwed up my new "drive time" feature which you have seen for the last week on the left side of the site. An incident on 18 at the switchbacks did close 18 early last week. Google was pretty quick to show that closure, however, their data says its closed through 9/25 which is not true. I have reported this to them several times but nothing has changed. So, I have re-written my code to use Google Drive Times (as they are the best at that), but ignore their closures and use only my CalTrans feed for that. Go figure.
