the sky is orange

and the air smells funny

big brush fire outside of town

40mph gusts

10 fire departments

evacuating homes

no one hurt yet

good luck to you firefighters — wish I could help

———

Update: here’s some more info: DFW Local channel.

I don’t think any of the hotspots are in this county yet .. but with 40mph winds who knows.

I can smell and taste the smoke.

oh yeah .. this just in..

The Centers for Disease Control says smoke from brush fires can cause respiratory problems.  Click here for information from the CDC.

update day 2
the western sky is blue again and there’s no smell of smoke in the air. at least in my neck of the woods.

update: RAIN
