Gideon’s Challenge

Breathless

The smoke and ash from the fires on the eastern side of the state have blown in.   Cars and rooftops are covered in ash making it look like everything is covered in dirty snow, and it’s hard to breathe.  I feel for all those stuck even closer to the blaze, and my heart goes out to those going through the ground eating devastation of the fires on the other side of the mountains.

Here are the photos I took last year at this time of the year.

And here is what the air looks like today on the farm before the ash started to really come down and cover everything.   Note, the mountains did not move… you just can’t see them.

No filters were used in these photos.  No color editing was done, just cropping.
