    Man, that's just terrible...



    (on a slightly 'grave humour' note, looks a bit suspicious the title on the home page: 'Pictures from the waldo fire, started by Torch'..:shock: )

    Can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to live near one of these fires and wonder every day...

    Heck, that's horrendous!
    The aircrews dumping onto the fire areas must feel like they're p*ss*ng into a furnace.
    Looks like the heat wave the 'States is having is due to the jet stream moving south, with a meandering track, rather than it's normal curve to the east. It's south of the UK at the moment, with no foreseeable movement, and would normally be to the north, which is causing excessively wet weather in the UK, and the opposite in the USA.
