Second Wildfire Breaks Out In Georgia Swamp; Florida Fires Still Raging

The fires are raging and the smokey haze we saw on Tuesday is back in spades. It's so bad, I just received an instant alert from my youngest daughter's school to pick her up because the air quality inside her school is being affected.

I'm praying for some rain.

Gov. Crist even asked Floridians to start praying for rain! At least he's looking in the right direction!
And I have been, praying for rain.

Wow, the only times I've been there, I found myself thinking that Florida was far too wet to burn. I guess I was wrong!

We had bad haze here from the "Hayman" fire a few years back. The sun was red all day, and so were everyone's eyes. It was bad.

Hope you get rain soon!

I had no idea it was that bad...I heard something in the news, but not the entire story it seems.

*sends a prayer for rain too*

should we dance? seems to work for some tribes. Just sayin´!

woman: Glad to help.

tmw: Every litttle bit helps.

jen: During the rainy season, Florida is too wet to burn. We haven't had enough rain lately and the ground is crunchy dry.

minka: Prayer, rain dance... every little bit helps.

I'll pray for a nice tropical storm! (No damage, of course!)

brooke: We were hoping T.S. Andrea would provide a few showers, but she fizzled out.
