Hi edhat,

We are so proud of you for the brilliant way you’ve kept the Thomas Fire information on Edhat current and beautifully done.  This Thomas Fire, while being awfully dangerous and scary, seems to have brought out the best in all of us!  Nice to see.

Like the first responders, in so many ways you, Edhat, are saving lives.  Sometimes it is the emotional life…by having you there -day and night- as our constant reassurance.

Thank you!
