Part of why you guys saw a series of posts about Magic Rocks was because the Raleigh area was under smoke from the “Evans Road” wildfire. The fires are originating near the east coast of NC and today’s easterly winds brought the smoke plume RIGHT OVER Raleigh.
It was definitely hazy, with visibility down to 1/2 mile at the Raleigh Airport this afternoon. You could also distinctly smell the smoke today. I made sure to keep the boys inside today, where our A/C did a good job of keeping the air clean.

The fires are nowhere near contained as of this writing, and best of luck to those who are working hard to keep it under control.
