There was smoke in the air today.

The fire is in the national park. Up near Lake Claire, about 200km away. Not a threat to us. But it was a little unnerving to see the smoke roll in this afternoon.

Everyone was kind of on edge today. Not that anybody was about to run home and start packing, mind you. It's far away. And at this point, there isn't much forest left around the city to burn, not after what happened last year. But after that kind of thing happens once, you start to feel a little jumpy when you smell smoke.

I looked out my window. Usually I can see the other side of the river valley rising up, and the spaces between the charred tree trunks at the crest. But there was so much smoke that I could hardly see it. Cleared away toward the end of the day, though, at least mostly.

It's exactly a year since we were allowed to come home, too. What timing.

At least it's raining now. Downside: it's a thunderstorm. Well, I guess you can't have everything.

Eep. D: I'm glad for the rain, and I hope some of it hits the national park and damps things down.
