My home territory is on fire! The Wallow fire in eastern Arizona is burning out of control. This is in my hometown's backyard. Just last summer, my brother-in-law and I spent a few days in that exact area camping and trout fishing on Big Lake. Awesome territory.
The smoke is billowing out across New Mexico as seen in the latest satellite image. My friends in Albuquerque are restricting their outdoor activities due to the smoke. At least two planes were diverted from the Albuquerque Sunport yesterday.
It is still early in the fire season, still no significant rainfall, so things don't look good.
