Driving down to North Carolina last weekend, we started passing signs that warned of dangerous ozone levels. Okay, it was over 90 degrees--that happens sometimes.
We got to a certain point in North Carolina, however, where the smell of smoke was really strong. We switched from satellite radio to local stations to see if we could find out what was burning. Nothing.
Finally, we arrived in the Outerbanks, unpacked the car and computer and I googled it. I had no idea that there was a fire going on in the Dismal Swamp, in both Virginia and North Carolina that had burned over 4000 acres!
In the morning, we can smell it here in the Outer Banks. It usually blows out by lunch time.
I guess I am just really surprised at how little coverage it has gotten outside of the immediate area. I am a self-reported news 'junkie' and if it was reported at home, I would have heard it.
