  • Mood:

The sky is white...

...with smoke from the fires to the west. Everything is hazy and it's harder to breath than normal. At night, since we have a good view of the mountains, being far enough east to actually see a good deal of the Front Range, we can actually see the glow in the hazy sky from the fires.

It's sobering.

We're way out on the plains, and it's not a threat to us. But every time I feel the wind blowing, and see the dry sky, it still makes me pray for the ones that are threatened. The immensity of it is only matched by how completely out of human control it is.
