It's 88 and SMOKY. The marsh fire apparently is still burning. No open windows today.

It's a little over 93 degrees and the smoke has cleared for now. The marsh fire is contained by water on all sides and no homes are threatened, but whatever wildlife is there are in danger. It covers a huge area. Here's one picture of the smoke.

I agree. It makes a person wonder, what's coming next?

Glad to hear that everyone is safe.

We still have fires all around us. Smells like a campfire outside and in the house.
