Holy Smoke!

If you live in the Northern California/Northern Nevada area, or have friends that do, your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feed is probably blowing up with hazy photos of the horrendous smoke in the air.  It is coming from the Rim Fire in Yosemite, that is currently burning over 105,000 acres and is only 2% contained.

The smoke is permeating everything – our clothes, our hair, our homes.  Outdoor exercise is not an option, and for many of us, neither is a headache-free day.

For the first time ever, the citizens of Reno are praying for wind.  Lots and lots of wind, so we can all breathe again.

There is one up-side, however.  It does make for the most magnificent sunsets!
