Looks like grass fire but smoke thick enough to close 380



By 4;30 they were beginning to open the highway back up. And, for the life of me, I'm not sure why the smoke was a severe as it was. I don't know if any structures got in the way, but it wouldn't surprise me.

"Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell in to a ring of fire...

I fell in to a burning ring of fire
I went down,down,down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns,burns,burns
the ring of fire
the ring of fire.

The taste of love is sweet
when hearts like our's meet
I fell for you like a child
oh, but the fire went wild..

I fell in to a burning ring of fire..."
~ Johnny Cash

Good observation the BG! If it looks like a grass fire, it is probabaly a grass fire. Kinda like if there is smoke there is fire.

First, I just want to say I've never had the hemeroids (sp?), but the lyrics from the Man in Black that Jarhead posted has always reminded me of what they must feel like.

I thought the Johnny Cash lyrics were written during a visit to the Center for Desease Control.
