Being that it is Wednesday night we had dinner at the Village Inn with Marv and Bell. When we came out of the restaurant the sky was thick with smoke. I would say visibility was two miles at best. Quick check on the news and we have fires to the north and south of us. The thick smoke was coming up from the fire outside of Walsonburg, CO. Walsonburg is about a 100 miles south of us.
With all the fire activity we have had and one so close to home last week, you get a little freaked out. The smoke tonight was so thick and the odor so strong you start thinking the fire is close. Most of Colorado Springs must have thought the same thing as they were broadcasting on the local channels to stop calling 911, unless you see flames or billowing smoke.
