Lisa just called. There's a brushfire to the southwest of our subdivision. There's a dry creek bed over that direction, with lots of--wait for it--"tinder-dry" cattails and trees, grass and, yes, brush. The temperature is 83 degrees right now, the humidity is 20 percent, and there are wind gusts from the southwest of 22 mph. Joy. If you want to see what's burning, take a look here. See that pasture and brush land between the Cherokee loop and Doppenschmidt Lane? That's where the smoke and sirens are coming from.
