No sign of any rain here. I don't think they will get the fire under control until we get a few days of rain.

According to the news tonight there are 15 million people who rely on the Winter Hill transmitter for TV and radio.  It's the main transmitter for the area, all the smaller ones locally rely on Winter Hill for their signal.

Alan and I were going to have a walk up there a few weeks ago, but decided it was too warm so we went to Rivington Pike which is next to Winter Hill but not as far to walk.  It looks like we missed our chance.

Yes only 10 weeks off now.  I can't wait, all those lovely sea days.

I have my ESTA approval so I am all set to go now.  It is valid until September 2020 so will cover this trip and next year's.  Now do I do another TA before it runs out in 2020?  I could be tempted.
