Around 1:30 PM, we got a visit from my former neighbors. I used to work at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest and Boggs Mountain Helitack is stationed there. Cal-Fire’s St. Helena Emergency Command Center had dispatched Copter 104 and its firefighters to a fire just over the hill from us. After dropping off the firefighters to suppress the fire, Copter 104 used Clear Lake to fill the bucket for water drops.
Yesterday was a pretty quiet and relaxing Sunday. The flock of pubescent girls that had been squawking Friday and Saturday, migrated back to roost elsewhere and we were allowed to listen to the lake lapping at the shore once more.
