Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
The fire still rages in the north end of the county, chugging through the national forest, now threatening a resort up at Lake Pillsbury I've heard. I can still smell smoke outside, although the sky is clearer then it has been (its actually blue now)

simplyn2deep you're up...and I'm off to see if I can't reach the 30k mark for the day.
