The wind has been very strong today and erratic again. Sometimes it is out of the south, then it is south east, then it is south west.
Dan and I had been smelling smoke and couldn't figure out how that is possible considering the fire is north of us. So I called the DNR and found there is a fire burning in the cedars some place over by Engadine. It apparently has been caused by logging operations and there currently is not any more info than that. They have already sent fire crews over there to assist and that is all I know for now.
Since we didn't hear any sirens and no one seemed in a big hurry, I can't venture to guess how "high" the concern is at this time.
