Oh, Dear...

'Tis the fire season, and this was the view tonight from my back yard.

This fire started the other day from lightning strikes--there were actually two, one is out or almost so, but today it got windy and this one is getting more troublesome.

The view from the end of our street, lots of people were standing in their yards taking pictures:

The flames are just cresting the hill and moving towards us, the bright orange spot in the middle. It's about 7 miles away from us, luckily the wind is blowing the smoke away from us otherwise it'd be all kinds of nasty. On the far right is smoke from a secondary fire just getting going tonight, sparked by this bad boy.

This is one night I would be OK with the breeze dying away.
