Wallow Fire Smoke Effects

Jun 9th 2011 at 4:22 PM

The Wallow fire is now the second largest fire ever to engulf Arizona.  As I am writing this the fire is about 240 miles south of Albuquerque,NM and less than half a mile away from Luna, NM.  I am over 260 miles away from the fire and I can see and feel the effects, and I can just imagine how bad it must be for the everyone that is close to it.  I have seen pictures of families leaving their homes and others who are watering down their homes to try and protect them as much as they can from the fire.  It is so sad.  If the wind would just calm down!

It was a very nice out  most of the day yesterday in Sandia Park until the wind changed and brought the smoke back in our direction.

Flag flying at the Sandia Park post office as the sun is going down yesterday evening.  By this time yesterday 389,000 acres had burned, mostly in the Apache National Forest.

You can barely see the Sandia mountains

The sun disappears in the smoke just a few minutes after this picture was taken on June 8.

I didn't know about this ...hate to hear that ...I'm a NM native and know, the SW doesn't get to many hurricanes or tsunamis, but wild fires are common and dangerous. ....hang in there Doddee
