Day Three Hundred Twenty.

In the past two days two more fires have broken out closer to our town making four surrounding us. Kind of scary and the air quality is so horrible it is LITERALLY raining ash. IT looks like a scene out of a scary movie outside where the sky is a tinted haze and you cant see anything that well. I ended up staying in today because I know the smoke has been effecting my respiratory system for the past month and being exposed to it more than I have to right now isn't the greatest idea. They are saying there is no rain in our forecast and they have deployed firefighters here for help from Vermont, Montana and New Hampshire. Hopefully soon mother nature will bring in the rain. We need it and some fresh air!

That is really scary. I remember when we lived in California and our cars were covered in ash from all the fires...
