Brush fire affecting local air quality

We woke this morning to a lot of what I would generally call "poof". We thought it was from local trees and was being carried in on the morning wind, but it seemed as thought there was a lot of it. We finally realized it wasn't from trees, but from the skies. There's a vegetation fire going on in the Santa Cruz Mountains and the ash is blowing down our way. They are battling 40-mile-per-hour winds and trying to evacuate people in the fire zone. I hope everyone stays safe up that way as fire fighters work to control and contain the blaze. Meanwhile, I won't be doing any outside work that requires deep breathing in the midst of the smoke-darkened skies and falling ash.

Quote Of The Moment
God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way. The way we learn those lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them.
