Smoke in the sky

November 10, 2016

The sun, hard to see in the photo, was blood red.
This is from our drive from Spartanburg, SC, up to Murphy, NC. They are having an "exceptional" drought, which is worse than "extreme." Several thousand acres are barely contained. We saw a run of fire right along the road. Hard to breathe, stinging eyes. Steve marveled at seeing rhododendron & other plants blooming months past their natural season. Everything is messed up.
