Good Neighbors

Flying canceled again today because of flight restrictions and a DC 10 observed to go right through our traffic pattern en route to drop fire retardant. Yay for the DC 10 – the fire looks more under control. The Soaring Club of Houston is breathing a sigh of relief and taking up a collection for our fire-struck neighbors. Our resident Piper Cub pilot took a neighbor who’s running a Facebook fire information page up for an aerial perspective which was appreciated.

Meanwhile the Texas Renaissance Fair grounds have fire-fighting ops being staged while the Fair people get ready for opening day in less than a month;  the Waller County Fairgrounds are housing all kinds of displaced livestock and pets, with some displaced owners living there too;   and the news media report that a lot of the fire-fighting on the ground is being done by volunteers from all over.

We’re all in this together.
