No more beautiful sight has been passing over the house lately to fight this damn fire
Here comes the helicopter, twentieth time today.
Wish the fire would burn out, so it could go away
How many trees we've burned down
Only God can say..
If the forest had some power, it would make somebody pay...
(with apologies to Bruce Cockburn)
|Still plenty of fire up there, esp on a hot, dry day.|

Not a whole lot of trees left when all is said and done
