In last night's post I said we had ash falling from the drift smoke from the Indians Fire. Here's the proof:

That's the ash that got through the screen of an open window and landed full two feet away on a piece of paper on my desk. The object casting the shadow is a pen.

I know this isn't all that exciting to most of you, but it's interesting to me. The Indians Fire is a long way from here. My best guess - given the lack of detailed maps I can find on this incident - is that it is about 100 miles from our home. And yet the smoke is dropping ash that thick through a screen at my house.
