downright amazing that waterman survived the crazy fires of 2009.

From LA Times on 9/18: "Officials have pushed back their estimated containment of the Station fire from Saturday to Tuesday and said this morning that the destructive blaze was now 93% contained.

More than 700 firefighters were battling the deadly fire, which has burned more than 160,000 acres. Two firefighters were killed and dozens of dwellings were lost."

hopefully the roads will be open and clear for some great snow this winter.

Agreed, definitely good

Agreed, definitely good news. What a shame that would have been after just starting to reopen.
