Smoke From Controlled Burn

There’s thick smoke in the air, from a controlled burn just over the Tennessee line, near the Big Frog Mountain. The wind is in the southwest, and it’s pretty nasty here, a little southeast of Mineral Bluff.

You can sign up for alerts in Georgia with the forest service, but this one wouldn’t have been on it, as it’s up in Tennessee.

I guess in theory I’m for this. It’s at least scientific management, and it should help the grouse and woodcock, which elitist outfits like Georgia Forest Watch don’t seem to care about. But it’s pretty annoying, given that it ruins one of the nicest afternoons on the porch all spring.
