At least nothing’s dangerously close so far this year. But the scent of smoke is in the air, and plenty of fires burning in the county, so a bit of awareness is a good thing.

It’s kind of interesting that my husband says there were far fewer kids than usual at school today when he dropped our daughter off this morning. Since it is also cold and flu season, I’m wondering if a bug is going around. Nothing to evacuate for around here, at least not in elementary school range. Only nearby fire I know about is off on the other side of town, and it hadn’t started that early.
