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.
