Up on Grandfather Mt. yesterday, could not see Table Rock, on an otherwise exceptionally clear day, for the smoke, about 20 miles away. Luckily,.... it was drifting toward Charlotte. Had lunch today, it was real clear, again. Left the office at 5pm, thought , Hhmm...kind of smoky, where did all those clouds come from?. Now I sit in my house, eyes and nose burning, smoky outside,.... waiting for rain. Now I smell what I missed in Wyoming in August. Hhhmmm, carbon dioxide poisoning, not likely fatal, I hope. I think we had rain sometime back in September, can't remember it was so long ago

My mother-in-law lives in Corbin, KY. She lives very close to the Cumberland Falls - a gorgeous area. Luckily, the fire was on the other side of the river across from the Visitor Center, Lodge, and campground. She called last night and reported that they are expecting rain that should put out the rest of the fires. She said that the fires were started by arsonists. She said some men were driving a truck and just throwing out burning newspaper as they drove along the back roads. They caught another man starting fires from his four-wheeler. My father-in-law is a volunteer firefighter in Rockhold, Ky and he has been very busy lately. I wish them both well.
