Smoke

As I watched smoke roll in to Bayview Sunday, I wondered whether they were new fires or just wind direction change. I went to all of our local TV venues, only to find week-end specials. No bulletins or interrupted programing, just business as usual.

This morning however, banner headlines proclaimed three serious fires in our area.

One wonders that if Aliens were to arrive from outer space on a week-end if we would have to wait until Monday to find out.

Ha, so true. I suppose I need to first check your blog with hope the aliens visited your house before mine.

I found myself in the same smoke investigation quandary over the weekend. The return of the smoke sure was a quick reminder to our hyper vigilant nerves standing half guard from last year.

I'm now on a mission to find a site that displays a live map of active fires, with an overlay of current wind direction and smoke impact. Otherwise, through the tall trees to view distance, smoke from Farragut smells the same as smoke from Spangle.

Too much to ask?

Judging from the clear skies here in Bayview today I would hazard a guess that it was all from the Wellsley Fire east of the Gorge.
