Where there's smoke...

 ...there's fire. Southern Oregon has been transformed into an eerie appearing landscape secondary to several out of control wildfires that cropped up as a result of a recent lightning storm. 

Although I enjoy the smell of campfire the snowstorm like flurries of ash are more than a little disconcerting.
Here is a picture of the smoke plume as you drive out of town toward our house and and into the smoke plume.
So, currently we are trying to stay indoors as much as possible and hoping that the firefighters are able to get a handle on these fires before too much more damage is done.
