: : I just caught the edge of the news last night, but could have sworn I heard that Linnville Gorge was on fire. Have you heard anything? Every county in SW VA, and NE TN is on fire somewhere, so it wouldn't surprise me. They've brought in firefighters from the Apache reservation. There are supposed to be 20 teams of them in the area.

: This morning the papers reported that the Western Band Cherokee had joined the fight. It is cloudy in Morganton, and the air is filled with smoke even here. When I walked out to my car after work, there were bits of ash and tiny pieces of charred wood on it. I haven't turned on TV or heard any report, but we are all hoping for rain from those clouds overhead---preferably heavy rain.
Susan: They've changed our rain forecast for early next week, but they're predicting the winds will finally start to blow later today. It's a mixed blessing - will push the smoke on out, but fan the fires. There seems to be little good news, at least until the rain actually materializes. NightSky
