My wife and I went to out to lunch today. As we were pulling out of the parking lot, we noticed dark skies out to the west. Being rather dry, this is a welcomed sight as the corn, beans, alfalfa and other vegetation are about on their last legs. However, after further inspection, the sky was dark only in a large segregated area. We called upon some friends that farmed further to the west of our place of employment to find that a tire recycling plant was on fire. By the time we finished lunch, that segregated area in the sky was not so small as the smoke now stretched to the east of us toward Lake Michigan.

Anyway, I'd sooner it been rain clouds than tire smoke.
