Well, Monday comes to find the Old Warhorse in a world of hurt. We went on a small road trip to my sister's home in the Central Valley, Chowchilla to be exact. We were at one point within a stone's throw of that particular Perko's in Turlock. Anyone that's been reading the current story will know which one I'm talking about.
We encountered a fire on the way, about a mile or two east of Casa De Fruita on the 152 between Gilroy and Los Banos. The fire eventually burned 1,650 acres before it was contained.
It was beginning in the afternoon Saturday and the firefighters were still in mop-up mode Sunday evening. 20+ engines, tankers and helicopters.
To my friend SC-I was about to make a comment on that locked thread only to find Mike had locked it while I was composing a response. Oh well, it was best to lock that thread.
This week may find me a bit scarce-school starts on Wednesday and I have a ton of loose ends to try to tie up at me school sites.
