|Morgan Hill Weather News: Tuesday 4/21/2009 3:30pm
As we bask in another 90+ degrees of heat, spare a thought for last year's devastating
Summit Fire that launched a very active fire season in our area on May 22nd.
NBC Bay Area News is reporting that an arrest has just been made in connection with the
origins of the Summit Fire.

Everything is back to "normal" today after yesterday's communication outage that took
away phone and Internet access for 50,000+ households. Our webcam and weather data
updates were down from just after 2am until around 8pm in the evening. This malicious
act was a pretty big news story given the widespread affect on banks, ATMs and store
card processing systems. Cash was king yesterday in the south county area. Let's hope
this attack on fiber optic cables is not repeated and that a few worthy lessons were learnt
about what can happen during an infrastructure emergency.

Hope you all enjoyed yesterday's April Fool's Day fun!
The folks over at Flight Global did a nice summary of the aviation pranks, including our own
and the amazing Hotelicopter... read their blog here.
Not wanting to miss out on the fun, local flight instructor Mary Ann Dach shared our view
of an Air Force One touch-n-go at South County Airport.
Check out Mary's blog here... and perhaps take a few flying lessons with her too (but
don't expect a 747) !!

March was a strange month : Earthquakes, mysterious "sonic booms" and unSafeway
Question is... did anyone notice President Obama paying a visit to Morgan Hill?
Southern California yes, but Santa Clara County?
Well... browsing our webcam archive I came across surprising evidence that the President
and his famous aircraft Air Force One did in fact make a low altitude pass over our town.
What was the purpose of this Executive inspection we wonder?
Did Governor Schwarzenegger persuade the President to view locations of last year's
wildfires in the hope of securing more fire-fighting resources and a "free ride" in Air Force
One? Or perhaps even President Obama has an eye on the local foreclosure market!
Of course, the President could have just been on a quick weekend visit to his favorite
Hawaiian Islands, sneaking back to the continental US under the FAA radar.
See Air Force One for yourselves below... or click here for an animated fly-by.
