Absolutely crazy down here. All the schools are closed, and the sky ranges from light to dark gray. If you walk outside for a few minutes, your lungs will burn and your sinuses ache.
I watched a powerline? satellite dish? explode off in the distance last night, shooting green fireworks into the air. The flames seemed very close, but thankfully, they were many miles away.
We are surrounded to the northeast and southeast by fire. About 20 miles or so.
We are waiting for the temperatures to drop and winds to change.
Until then, another sleepless night awaits.
