Usually I can see all of downtown and mountains all the way from Tennessee from our back porch. This is all I could see 2 days ago ...
The smell of smoke is awful. There have been at least 13 forest fires raging in in the last 2 weeks. The range from 5 to several hundred acres. We are desperate for rain.
The smoke started clearing today and gives me a clear view of the forest fires. It also shows you how much was hidden the other day.
We've had 75 days with no rain. We live in a temperate rain forest for goodness sake! Rain every single day is normal. There are fire crews from all around the country here right now. The entire town is pitching in to help them.
We just need rain!
