Smoke Signals

I was supposed to have office hours from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. this afternoon. But by around 4:00 p.m., my office had started to smell like a backyard barbecue. No kidding – my eyes were actually starting to smart. I decided to cancel office hours and get out of dodge. About a half hour later, the university president canceled evening classes. (I don’t think that the university buildings are actually threatened by the fires, but the smoky air just isn’t healthy for breathing.)
