It certainly looks like the apocalypse outside right now. Smoke from the wildfires down around the coastal areas of NC has made its way inland and has settled in over our entire town. It looks kind of spooky out there. And the smell is slowly seeping into the house, even though we have everything closed up tight. Areas of it were even thick enough to make driving a little tricky, like driving in heavy fog. Its so weird. I had to run into Target after work today. And it was a bright sunny day when I parked and went in. And yeah, I KNOW I tend to browse in Target for a fairly long time, but not so long as to expect that kind of a change. When I walked back out to my car, the smoke had arrived. Everyone was just standing around in the parking lot looking at it, trying to figure out what was going on. I overheard several people on their cell phones asking if there was any explanation for it on the news. I guess we all expected that the fires were far enough away that we wouldn't have any of this here. But we were wrong, cuz.....its definitely smokey out there.
