The above view was from last night, looking south from beautiful downtown Midland, where the smell of smoke was strong, very windy, with fires burning in several directions from Midland.

When you drive through the West Texas zone the air reeks of petroleum.
Currently my zone of far east Fort Worth is not one of those spots. It is relatively sunny, birds are chirping, the wind has died down.
And I think I'll go for an afternoon swim with no fear of incoming thunderbolts.
