Smoke, Day 3
Well, it's not quite as smoky today. Unlike yesterday, the children were allowed to go outside for recess. I thought all of this smoke was from the local fire, but it turns out it is being blown here from Georgia. It seems that there is a tropical depression sitting off the coast of GA/FL, which is bringing high winds and blowing smoke as far as Miami. A tropical storm is just what we need to put out the fires, but this one has hardly any rain associated with it and gusty winds. The newspaper said the smoky conditions could persist through June. I sure hope not, or we just may start our summer vacation a few weeks early. School is out May 23rd. Anyone up for some visitors???
