There have been eighty major wild fires burning across the Southeast. Eighteen of those fires are in the North Carolina Mountains. Those mountains have been burning since October 23rd.
The winds have been up and we have not had rain in about thirty-five days now. According to the weather view, there are no chances of rain at least for another week.
Its dry, its windy.
We now have a "no burn" ban going on all around the area. Though I live aproximatly a hundred miles from these mountains, we are almost smothered by the smell while the smoke is filling the air. Its hazy and smoggy. The air quality in my area is at Orange.
I pray we get some rain soon, especially in the mountains of North Carolina.
