Blech. The smoke is back.

Driving home tonight, the sky to the southwest was wild and dark, shot with purple and orange light. The rest of the sky was blue and full of sunshine - the column of smoke looked dark and menacing through my sunglasses.

While I was at the health club, it settled over the town. I came out to find orange, dirty light in the parking lot, and dark clouds. It's far, far darker than it should be this early in the evening, and raining ash.

The culprit for the smoke is about 25 miles away, the Wood River I fire: http://newsminer.com/news/2009/jul/22/crews-prepare-protect-wood-river-cabins-fire-south/
