The place has smelled of smoke all night. There must be a wildfire to the south, but I find no news of one on either television or Internet, and it's either too small or too distant to produce red light on the horizon. I guess evacuation of the town is unlikely. Good. I've been sleeping ten or eleven hours a day (though still mostly in two hour or so chunks) and would find any disruption very inconvenient. The sciatica I've lately developed would make it very difficult as well. I'm thinking road back to normal, if passable at all, may be very long.
