Weatherkid - thanks for the correction. That's what I get for listening to a guy with a badge. 'Trust, but verify'...my bad.

Correction: its San Diego County and Riverside County lines. Where the fire is burning, is where we hunt. Congrats on the AC!

MFH yes, my weather wise wife says it is 'fire cumulus'. Hope our firefighters can stay hydrated and safe. Triple digit temps here.

Apr 17, '12. Been here on WU since '03 and am still amazed at the bounty that the photo world has to offer. I did a year as an approver, that was sometimes very tough. We had a few misfits that wanted things not in the WU 'guidelines' and would not take NO for an answer. Hopefully those times are long gone. Thank you all for helping my WU experience be Wunderful.
