Burning Up ... Literally
here or here. That second link takes a little while to load, but once it does it shows a map. If you zoom way out on the map you can see where all the fires are in the west - and there are a lot of them. Ours is roughly 30 miles from us, with no chance of getting to us, but we sure are getting a lot of smoke and ash. I was surprised by it Tuesday afternoon, when the sky suddenly became orange, and smoky. The front edge of the smoke got to us and we could hardly see more than two blocks. The car had ash all over it within minutes.
