There's Smoke In The Air
I'm at the office right now, and it's a bit smokey in the air right now. Apparently there's a 150-acre fire south of here in LaPine. Several of my co-workers here live close to the fire, so they're a bit on edge right now. Jack can see it from his house, so hopefully he'll be posting some more updates as he sees them. I don't know how close the fire is to Simone, but she probably doesn't care (or even know about it) as she's probably on her way to Burning Man.
For more fire updates, head over to the NWCC site.
Update on 8/29: Looks like everybody's going home and they were able to save the homes in the area.
