Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

On the little project I am working on we are making good progress. We have flown about 96 thousand pounds of seed onto the burned area. We are about 1/3 complete with that part of the project. If the weather would settle down and let us go to work we would finish this in about four days of good flying.

We had to shut down today because of strong winds aloft that blew the planes and helicopters all over the place. We will likely be shut down tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday because of weather too. Time will tell.

The mulching side of the project is coming along too. There is a lot of straw on hand and a lot more being delivered daily. It will be fun to see the three helicopters that arrived yesterday actually fly with the mulch---I am really looking forward to watching them bomb the hill sides.

I think that'd be fun to watch too!
