Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Today was cleaning lady day, so daisy_knotwise and I took Katie and Julie to McDonald's for lunch. When we walked out and got in the van, I sniffed the air.

"Something's burning somewhere. I wonder what it is."

When we got to our home, a couple of miles away, the air was still smoky.

"This has got to be one big fire," I said.

Turns out I was right. The smoke is from a forest fire in the arrowhead region of Minnesota. The smoke in the upper atmosphere got pulled down by the lake breeze downdraft near Lake Michigan.

  • I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

    With a lot of help from my friends, the pile has been moved successfully. Back to work tomorrow, where I will work on shifting different piles. :)…

  • Still Behind

    I am *trying* to catch up on things. I may eventually succeed, but this was not the day.

  • Digging Out

    I have way too many things that need to be done. I will make some more progress on them soon. On the other hand, the house is a good bit cleaner…
