Smoking Section

No wonder our valley is a tad on the smoky side. See for yourself on this national wildfire map, here.

See that big cluster of green triangles right on the Idaho/Montana border, about halfway up the state of Montana? We live right in the middle--in a big bowl of a valley, so we don't get the fire, just the smoke. If you click on that area a few times, it will zoom you in pretty tight and you can see our valley, surrounded by the Rombo Mountain, Tin Cup, Bridge, Jocko Lakes, Mile Marker 124 and Sawmill Complex fires. We live almost due east of the Bridge fire.

The forecast doesn't call for any rain in sight. I'd better start looking into gas masks.

Just kidding.

*cough, cough*
