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).

Caption: Coming in to dive-bomb the fire with belly-scooped water, three CL-215s come in rapid formation. I don't know what their turn-around time was, but they wasted no time going back to the lake to scoop more water.
It is an amazing thing to see in person.
The helicopter just made a supply drop to the Hotshot crew below.
