KrazyKristin, I wondered why a bunch of dog stuff showed up for my cat today

Sep 25 : 08:10pm
Hi Gorn. I haven't heard anything. I know they were out there in numbers a bit earlier... They are staging on highway 18 above Delta (or what is left of Delta - pretty much no longer a road).

Gorn
Sep 25 : 08:06pm
Any news on the off-duty firefighter? Between BBC and Cactus Flats there were no searches being conducted at 7pm.

If anyone finds my chewy.com order my dogs will love you for life! Evidently it's out there somewhere . . .

I came up about two hours ago. There was no roadblock at Bryant and 38. Hubby drove up before me and said it was at the hairpin turn by Forest Falls. There was an unmarked but official looking SUV at the side of the road. The men standing there chatting made no effort to make eye contact or get me to stop. I had my drivers license in my hand and was ready to show it.

Gunshots in Crestline. I have the helicopter circling my house. Anyone have any info? Thank you.
