Colored Clouds from Forest Fires

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Once again the forests here in Southern New Mexico are ablaze. It is already hot, super dry and incredibly windy (sustained 40+ called for today). There are fire crews from all over in Silver City today.
The following are pictures taken in my neighborhood last night. The fire is roughly 70 miles from my house as the crow flies. Enjoy the beauty and pray for rain!

    The pictures are beautiful, but how horrible. I will certainly pray for rain. Normally, forest fire season for us is in August here in Minnesota. We've had an early spring, so I hope that doesn't come early too.

    I am in AZ and we have 4 burning now. Not close (thank goodness) but the air is horrible. One is about 40 miles from us. Stay inside or use a mask. The particulates are hard on your lungs!

    Great pics. I saw the smoke last night but didn't take any pictures from my side of town. This morning it was moving this way again but now it seems to be headed more east. Still visible over the mountains but at the moment not headed toward town like it was. Could change at any minute though as we all know.
