Smoke from a distant fire

Okay, people have been asking if we are safe or if we were impacted by the High Park fire in Fort Collins. I can honestly say up until about 15 minutes ago we were not.

However, now, gag, cough, the smoke moved in while we were sitting outside. We came inside, closed all the windows and turned on the ceiling fan which we never use. We can still smell the smoke.

Outside our windows the air is smutty with wood smoke. If we did not have access to TV or internet I would be leaving now, thinking that fire was imminent. The sky is gray and murky. It even smells like smoke in the cabin right now.

I am assuming the sunset is going to be awesome, but at what cost?
We are far away from the actual fire, and this is the first time we’ve felt a real bite in the reality.

Hopefully, this change in the wind pattern will help the firefighters fight this out of control blaze. Maybe, just maybe, it will burn back on itself.
