Smoke, Fire, and Dust

Here's a NASA Earth Observatory image of some of the fires burning in Texas on April 15, with smoke plumes heading southeast.    On Thursday, the sky had been clear blue...with the change in wind direction overnight, the blue turned increasingly gray with smoke during the afternoon.  It was a very dry, strong wind, and the smoke and ash made throats and eyes sting.

Now there's a dust storm north of us in Texas, some of which will no doubt land on us, though right now our surface winds are blowing from the south.
