    stinky, smelly smoke everywhere!

    How many others in NC are being affected by the smoke? My subdivision is full of it, and it stinks... bad!

    You can actually see it in the pics I took from my front porch today.

    Is it smog or are there fires? Before our daily rains started, we were having lots of wildfires in Central Florida...one day we watched smoke blow across our front yard...it was from a "controlled" burn. I am so grateful for the rain!

    Geez..I was just coming to post the same dang thing! I'll go snap pics outside my house in a bit. It's been so thick at times, we can't even go outside! We're getting it being so near to the fire in the Dismal swamp and then from the other side of the swamp from the one that's been burning for a couple of weeks! I thought when our yard lit on fire in Feb. I never wanted to smell smoke again...still don't! Blah!!
    Be back in a few with some pics... nasty mess!! Here's a link to the fire that's getting us the worst amount of smoke and it's only moving more our direction!!

    Stay safe everyone. I was living in Kansas when they had some nasty fires and the smoke was just awful.

    Hope it clears up soon - we've had smoke from fires before and it is awful.
