The cell phone tower you are using is currently on fire. Please try your call later.

Two miles before my exit to go home, I look to my left and the entire ridge line is burning. This is about 3 miles from my house. A large four engine prop plane is flying in circles, but not doing anything else as far as I can tell.

The smoke is so thick it is like night, and it is 4 in the afternoon. The air is almost unbreathable. I pass four fire engines heading in the direction of home. A few minutes later they are all in the carpool lane and they pass me.

I have been home less than 20 minutes and there is a coat of ash on my car. I can see ash raining down outside in what little remaining sunlight there is.

I cannot get pictures, it is already too dark.

Too bad. The new digital i have does really well in low light (as long as it or the subject isn't moving much.). I would love to see more pictures. Glad to hear your house is okay. Keep an eye out though tonight for glowing embers.
