Water Scooper

Uploaded by: katy99780

Thursday July 4, 2013

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Pretty rough gif... I hadn't intended to make a gif, just had the camera in sports mode to maybe get one decent shot in a series of this water drop on the Moon Lake fire.

I believe this is a CL-215 aircraft.

This is on fire #401, one of several wildfires in the Tok area.

Neat to see the action of this because it emphasizes just how dangerous this situation is.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
