Several hot, dry days lie ahead, and those are the sort of days when fires are difficult to contain. Fires in the rugged canyons and ridges of the Sierra are hard to contain in any case, but the weather is going to make it even worse. I'm hoping we get the usual shift of winds this afternoon so the air can get a bit cleaner. This smoke would breathing unpleasant even without its odor.
It's the devil's barbecue!
