Because I live in a hole I had no idea that the wildfires were that close to me until I looked out the window and saw the "snow" falling. I knew that there were fires nearby because I smelled the burning, but when Nathaniel's tricycle got covered in ash in a two hour time period, I realized it's probably a different fire than I thought.

Here is a shot from outside my patio. Notice that the smoke is hovering above us. The black spots are the ash that is falling.

Here is the North view.'s pretty gross out.

I actually swept my patio this morning and this is the accumulation since then. I have since closed my door.

We are safe. I just hope the power doesn't go out because my laptop battery doesn't hold a charge and I'm actually doing homework right now! Let you all know if things change!
