Fire season, and the blogs that cover it

Where I live, in north-central Florida, our eyes are burning, our throats dry, our sinuses ravaged. Smoke fills the air. The smell permeates our homes and offices. Monday night, ashes flew like snowflakes about the campus. (See photo, photo, photo.)

Kay Day is covering the story in her blog, complete with maps and resource links.

At the Los Angeles Times, California fires are also being blogged.

My friend Kim (your former student?) also posted some cool pics from campus on Flickr.

Thanks so much for mentioning my blog in your post–I’m adding a link to your site, if that’s okay. Here in NE Florida, we are very tired of smoke–eyes itch, throat scratchy, etc. Hopefully, we’ll get more rain and the wind, picking up now, may blow the smoke away.–best, Kay Day

Your pics are great! It is so strange to see Gainesville covered in a haze!
