smoke-filled skies

Where there's smoke...

For two days now, a fire has been burning just north west of Palm Springs near an area called Snow Creek (see map). Estimates of its size range from 3000 acres to 5000 acres, and it is less than 50% contained.

The smoke is clearly visible over the mountains by Chez Paul, and the air has that acrid smell.
