Smoke in the Air


Awakened by the smell of smoke

I was awakened this morning by the wind and the smell of heavy smoke in the air.  I don’t know where the active fire is burning but it is very close.  I know the one 70 acre fire about a mile from me the other day was contained, but I don’t know if it’s rekindled itself with this strong breeze blowing.  This was taken at 3:30 in the AM.

    Oh, dear. It seems early in the season for forest fires.
