i apologize for the frequency of posts today; i know i hate it when people post a kabillion times and drive down all my friends' posts. *sigh*

but this is frightening.

thye had been reporting this weekend that manhattan was being affected by forest fires in canada.

you do the math there.

so anyway, i went outside for a small walk.

new york city is covered in a whitish haze.

there is the delicious sweet smell of charred wood.

it's beautiful, but tremendously disturbing.

update: talking about this at work over a glass of delicious anguillan rum. ursula says, "oh, so that's why new york smells so good right now."

ahh, we get bad fires all the time. maybe ten years ago, they were so bad that it was raining ash for a week and a half.

yes...but these forest fires are over 600 miles away.

Hmmm... sustained, low heat... rich hardwood smoke... The city of New York has become a giant barbecue pit!

I'm going to cover myself in dry-rub and go for a walk.

It's hazy in southern Pennsylvania (where I am) too, from the same forest fires. Freaky. And because I live in a valley, it's all settling and here and not being blown away at all. Smoke, smoke, smoke.

I noticed the smoke yesterday. I thought the sun was the moon.

*thinks the first sentence is a reference to her*

no! not you! was a reference to someone i took off my friends list, actually.
