Fire And Smoke
We thought when we left California we would be leaving the land of drought, fires and smoke. Not the case. Here in Atlanta people are wearing gas masks. As of this morning there are 51 forest fires burning in northern Georgia and western parts of Tennessee and North and South Carolina. Atlanta TV news has shown interviews with elderly lifetime Atlanta residents all saying the same thing. They have never seen this in all their time living here. There are not enough firefighters to handle it so it will take rain and plenty of it and there is none in the forecast. It has been seriously dry here. Records being broken. The one bright side is that very little property damage has occurred as the burns are in remote areas. That's good.
