Smoke gets in your eyes..and nose, and throat....

We are waiting for the framing to come for the roof...watching the weather so that once the roof is removed they will have time to cover before the next rain. Even if we have to delay our house, we desperately need rain, things are already looking parched and even more threatening, there is a large, still not contained fire burning in the Pocosin Refuge east of us. The smoke here looks like a medium to dense fog, not healthy for venturing outside.
Here is the link to the local paper's article on the fire,which is currently the largest active wildfire in the United States. The fire started with a lightning strike June 1 in Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge.
