There is a fire burning about 15 miles away from the town of Red Lodge, moving towards the town of Red Lodge. This is the smoke plume. There is a big town meeting tomorrow morning, I guess that they might be setting up the snowmaking equipment on the ski mountain to protect their structures. I hope the mountain doesn't burn.
In other news. I left my job today. I guess that I came to this realization that I can only hit my head against a wall so many times before taking two steps to the left and walking out the door. It's not like this was a random thing. I have had a couple meetings over the summer with my boss to try to work everything out. Yesterday in what started out as a 'mid-summer review' quickly deteriorated into personal attacks and I had to bring in a third party!
It's hard, and I'm not excited about leaving this place a little over a month before I was originally planning. It's hard to say goodbye to all my friends. It's also really good that I can leave, this summer has sucked.
Oh yeah, plus with this fire, I don't think I can take the backpacking trip I wanted to go on. :(
