smoke, Irene

The smoke from the Dismal Swamp fire was thick last night in Norfolk and on the Elizabeth River.  I was working, not sailing - but I don't think sailing would have been much fun.  The fire has been burning for a couple of weeks now.

The experts said it would take a lot of rain to put out the fire.  Rain may be on the way in the form of "Irene".  A hurricane is a rough way to put out a fire.
