Bambi Buckets and Borate Bombers

I missed my chance to get a good picture of the borate bomber flying right overhead. I love the sound of that plane. It has a deep rumble and you just know it is on the way to help. We had a thunder and lightening storm about a week ago and now the wildfires are in full force. From sun rise to sunset, the fire fighters are hard at work.
Sometimes, they will dip out of the river to fill the buckets which is interesting to watch from our deck. You can see the air is filled with smoke now.
