You are correct, sir!

One of my guesses as to the source of the fire that caused all the smoke around Beaumont yesterday was correct. It was from a marsh fire. The Beaumont Enterprise reported that the smoke was from a lightning-ignited blaze at the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, which is about 40 miles southwest of here. The fire in the picture is at the refuge, only the photo isn’t of this fire but rather one in August 2003.

The smoke isn’t as bad today as it was yesterday. It really wasn’t so much of a factor later in the day yesterday as we had some pretty heavy-duty rains in the afternoon. But I just had to gloat over correctly guessing the source of all that smoke. I just knew it was from a marsh fire, or from Mexico, or from a KISS Concert or from somewhere.
