Smoke on the Water….

There has been a fire burning several counties away, but the smoke has been hangin in the air here for the better part of the last 24 hours. This morning, as I was walking into work I had the feeling that I should have a bag of marshmallows, or climbing out of a tent and sleeping bag, instead of going into work.

The haze has been crazy, too, making what would normally be clear, bright and sunny days, and taking the edge off of them. Along with the haze, though, has been the smell of smoke. The smell has been glorious, stirring images of camping and hanging out from my days as a teen, but it has been playing hell with allergies and sinuses.

It has also led me to some concern (remote, but still), about a few peopl that I used to know from the county where the fires have been. We haven’t talked in years (in part because it was a roommate situation that went south), but I do hope they aren’t… um, I’ll avoid an obvious dark pun here and just hope they aren’t impacted by the fires…
