the fires are very bad right now.
what starts as a far-off flamingo pink sunset turns the next day into smokey campfire haze, and then wind. and then big brown whirling winds, and aqua-bomber planes, and soon it is not far off at all.
the smoke turns black, sirens sound. mini Hiroshima-like clouds of smoke and another pink sunset followed closely by an orange orange moon.
the Superstore parking lot is full, and perhaps Walmart, too.
