» Tuesday, May 22, 2007Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
From the AJC:
From the view through the windows across the hall you might think the fire was down the street.For the second time in less than a week, smoke from the South Georgia wildfires Tuesday morning was blowing into metro Atlanta.
It was a strange morning anyway. On nights before I have to drive in to work, I leave my computer on so I don't have to go through the time of booting up in the morning to check weather and traffic. This morning I found the computer had shut off. We apparently had a very small power failure, small enough not to mess with the clocks on the microwave and the alarm clock in the spare room, but enough to knock out the clock on my stereo system, my computer, and, of all things, the router (usually the DSL modem takes a hit, but not this time).
I also continue to have a problem with my XM radio. It was fine yesterday morning, but by the time I drove home, it was fading out under overpasses (once under the overpass and then again a second time) and also near trees, which it's never done before. It was the same way this morning. Needless to say the traffic report was very disjointed.
Damn...you can smell the smoke in the building, and none of our windows open.
