    Here is a link from Alligator point which is about 90 miles west-south-west of the fires in South Georgia, North Florida. The smoke has blocked out the sun in our area for 3 days and has kept the high temps in the mid 80's rather than the low 90's which would be the case if the skies were clear. Our visibility at time has been down to 1/2 mile.

    That is amazing! Hotter in Maine than in Florida. You know that doesn't happen that often in a years time.
