We all expected that this would be a bad fire season because of the lack of snow and moisture this winter. But when I came out of a movie yesterday and saw that black plumes of smoke rising to the west, it frightened me.
These photos were taken with my iPhone and were taken from near my home. My home is not in any danger, but we are surrounded by forest and this could easily be us. There were 170 homes that were evacuated as of last night and many more on alert.
With no moisture on our radar, this could be a very long summer.
