puff, puff, pass.

it's not haze. 
it's not fog.
it's not cloudy.
it's not mist.
it's not smog.


walking out of the house & into the backyard yesterday was kind of like stepping into a raging house party. come on, y'all, you know what i'm referring to. don't get it? okay, then it was like walking into the girls bathroom in high school during lunch time. still don't get it? well, whatever. 

bottom line: it was smokey as hell outside.

there's currently a wildfire burning in a swamp that is about fifty miles away {a little more than an hour drive}. smoke from the fire has blanketed the area. even the smokey smell is starting to infiltrate the house. yuck.



it's been smokey before, but i don't recall it ever being this bad.

earlier this summer we had some issues with a wildfire in northeastern north carolina, but it was mostly just a smokey smell that lingered in the air. this is different. you can see the smoke. it makes you cough when you walk outside.
 
apparently, lightning triggered the fires. wind caused this crazy smoke blanket. and, our hella-hot temperatures have not helped the situation which means that we'll - more than likely - be dealing with this mess for a while.

{sorry about my ghetto back door and, yes, we use an empty keg as a "hose reel"}

so, for now, i suppose we'll do our best to stay indoors {and, hopefully, i won't "rock star" the television}. and, if we get bored, we can always enjoy the sun's eerie shade of orange as it tries to peek through the smokey-smoke.

Ugh! Hope you get some good hard rain to put out the fires and some strong winds to blow all that smoke away soon. There were some wild fires started by lightning strikes here in Georgia (Last week, a co-worker's family had to evacuate their home, since it was real close to their backyard property).

Blessings & Aloha!
...finally able to do a little blog reading...your on my google reader and I wanted to stop by and say hey! Other than the awful smoke, I hope you all are doing well!

Ugh! We had something like this a few weeks ago from wildfires in Florida and Georgia! We're in South Carolina! And not even the southern most point of South Carolina. It was stinky, foggy, and awful!! I feel your pain!
