We spent all afternoon in a smoke plume that drifted south from the Georgia fire. It was weird. About 2:00 pm it began turning an eiry yellow outside, by 3:00 it was getting dark, by 5:00 it was like nighttime, all the street lights and night lights had come on. It's been 'snowing' ashes all afternoon, there was a layer on my truck when I left the office today. Luckily the smoke itself didn't settle, but we are staying indoors until this passes. Weirdest thing I've seen in a long time, reminds me of the Science Fiction movies we saw in the 50's and 60's.
The fire itself has dropped down into Florida one county east of us...... Hope it rains real soon before it comes through the forest and hits populated areas.
