Too close for comfort

A bit of unwelcome excitement here this week -- a fire broke out on Sunday afternoon, just above the Village.  They got a perimeter line around it pretty quickly, but are still up there on the slope working it.  Schools were closed for a couple of days, but the air is clearing now, and we're about back to normal.  We were so very grateful that it wasn't windy -- this was burning about 3/4 of a mile west of us, at the ski resort.  About 100 acres of forest lost, and it could have been so very much worse! :(
