We're Burning Up

Chunky Gal fire from last week
Sundown through the smoke and hze
The mountains are aflame all around us. It has taken two weeks of pressure to get the state to impose a burn ban, meanwhile idiot arsonists have been lighting the tinder dry woods on fire. We haven't had any significant rainfall in a month; five years ago we were the wettest spot in the nation. Smoke has settled into our valley (Iotla Valley) and ash is starting to fall. No rain is forecast until at least Saturday. Voting on Tuesday could well be a very dicey affair. I have no idea what the GOP will do if our polls are on-fire. If you want to see the general area, Google Franklin NC.
