Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

Posted on: 12 June, 08

There are forest fires about 200 miles from here.  The winds and such were just right to waft all that smoke over here.  Not only can I smell the smoke, I can see it too.  My eyes are burning.  The smoke is setting off the smoke alarms in people’s homes.  Can you imagine what it is like closer to the actual fires?  It is bringing back memories of California.  When the brush fires swept through, we would pack up the car and watch the fire line creep down the mountain.  The closest it ever got was within a mile of our house.

Okay, that’s finally making me grateful for the rain and overcast and cold here. Finally the sun is out today. At least we aren’t battling scary elements like that, or the floods in Iowa. It’s depressingly gray here, but it’s not life threatening, that’s for sure.
