We are experiencing something new.
Driving home the I noticed
a strange cloud.
When I got home, I turned on the local News.
We were told that
a huge forest fire had broken out.
It was about
thirty miles from where we live.
We decided to go and see for
ourselves what it looked like.
This is the road going into the town
nearest the fire.
The smoke had covered the sky!
Up in the mountains, the sky
had an orange tint to it and the sun
was bright gold.
To close for comfort.
We headed back home.
This picture was taken just outside our front door,
(yes, that's a dead tree in our front yard)
Last night I took Lucy outside for her "break" and the sky was
lit up all red from the fires!
It is now 220,000 acres huge and growing every minute.
It's only 11% contained.
We are staying indoors because of all the smoke.
