I spend most of my time upstairs, so I honestly didn't really notice at first. There's been an odd sour smell in the house for the last few days, and I couldn't pinpoint it. But I went downstairs to let Zander out and I could SMELL SMOKE. Which I think is one of the worst things you could probably smell at 10pm. But after a thorough examination of the house, I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. So I let Zander out. And as soon as I opened the door, there it was. Haze. And I have this brilliant moment of, "Oh yeah, there's fires west of us. Guess I should check on that." So we are expected to have smokey skies, smells, and even falling ash over the next few days. Fires have reached south of Missoula, and I'm in Great Falls. They've evacuated counties in Montana as of today. Sigh. I feel terrible for all those already affected and evacuated. I hope we aren't next. My first wildfire evacuation isn't something I want to experience this week.
