We have 3 major fires burning now in Northern New Mexico. The Cerro Pelado, Cooks Peak and Calf Canyon/Hermit Peak fires have consumed 168,600 acres as of this morning (approximately 13 Eldorados in size). Smoke from the Cerro Pelado fire is blowing over our neighborhood thanks to the high Spring winds. The charred remains of small twigs will occasionally fall from the sky.
For those of us living in the West… climate change is devastatingly real.
