Today's installment covers the wildfire news for both yesterday and today, including stories about how California wine crops may be spoiled by excessive wildfire smoke (something Australian vintners had problems with during bushfires down under), another on how weather could increase the severity of wildfires in Washington State and British Columbia, and more national and international wildfire news.
To lead off, here is a pretty nifty photo from Wayne Coulson, owner of Coulson Flying Tankers, showing President Bush flying over the Martin Mars in Lake Shasta.
