Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Etc. --- Day 228
Just checked weather report: 'Smoke' Alert still posted. And according to the person we were going to stay with: We have been playing golf and doing gentle hikes but there is no question that you are breathing in the stuff. The forecast is for more of the same. The Trinity Ridge fire is one of the two big ones and it is pretty much due west of here. There is little or no containment yet and they don't anticipate any in the near future. With a prevailing west to east wind, I suspect the smoke will continue.
Too bad for all concerned. No trip for me, but Boy am I Organized after another closet/packing caper. Trying to see if there is another quick road trip I can arrange, but doubtful in last two weekends of summer (?!); the few places I've checked which are usually maybe $125 a night are $350 and up, and even they don't have any rooms.
