Here in Chico where I sit working from home the Dixie Fire rages. Currently, it has burned more than 722,000 acres and it is only 40% contained. The smoke outside has turned the sky white and my dog keeps looking up at me bored and morose. She knows something is wrong, she can smell it, but though she seems worried she still needs to run - but being outside gets unpleasant after a short time, so we do what we can inside.
