    According to this article, there have already been 560 wildfires this year (just 2 months!)...compared with 480 for ALL of 2008. And of course, wildfire season is April-June!!

    I drove north from Dayton on US 1 a couple of weeks ago. I was amazed at how much development there was around Bunnel and Palm Coast. If I remember correctly that area burned pretty badly in 97. Lots more houses now.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    And you didn't stop in and say hello? I live just a couple of blocks off of 295.

    NOAA actually had satellite photos that showed the plumes rising over the larger fires between Daytona and St. Augustine. I had one of the photos as a background on my PC for a long time.
