Dismal Swamp Fire

The Dismal Swamp fire, which has burned 6100 acres, is about two hours from us, but we are still getting the smoke. WTKR says people in Maryland are getting it also. While we do not enjoy breathing the smoke, we are thankful friends who have dealt with it for the last nine days are getting a much needed break.

The smoke has not been that bad for us since the wind keeps changing direction. We have it for a little while and then it clears up as quickly as it descended upon us. I tell ya though, smelling smoke causes some concern here at Contentment Acres.

You can find current information on the fire here: You can also learn about other incidents around the country. Thanks to Felicia B. for the link!
