Aside from not having rain in such a long time ( apparently we’re near drought conditions ) , the rain is sooooo wonderful because of this:
That is not fog…. it’s SMOKE. Smoke from a fire that started 32 days ago.
The 200 acre fire is now reported to be 280 acres.
This smoke has been awful… at any given time of the day our air quality goes down to nil because the fire is still smouldering and flaring up.
The scariest factor is that it had actually reached onto our neighbors property when it started! They took the girls to go see it afterschool yesterday and it’s STILL on fire!
We knew that it was close… but not THAT close.
