I woke up this morning with the smell of smoke stronger than it was last night. I looked out the window to see the sky appear to be overcast, not with typical clouds but from smoke. Not too much later I got a call from L, who lives about 16 miles east from here, saying they got the smoke this morning and because of health reasons he and the wife (both of whom are retired) are going out of town until probably Sunday. He didn't say where they were going but I have a good hunch it'll be Las Vegas. I'll be glad once this is all over with.
