fire plume (and crows)

Strong winds again today (and everything is bone dry): this is the south-west corner of the huge Calf Canyon/Hermit's Peak fire flaring up this evening, as seen from our driveway. According to the evening briefing the direction of the winds mean that it's blowing back into the Pecos Wilderness, and torching patches of unburnt fuel (for which read: burning some of my favorite hiking country, ever).  This is, as the crow flies, about twenty miles north east of us - and like everyone, we're fervently hoping for rain.

Just after dinner, there was a sound as though the largest rats in Eldorado were trying to burrow through our roof - turned out there was an entire crow parliament on the roof and in the trees outside, much to Gramsci's puzzlement.
