Taos is ~50 miles NE of us. You can see where we are in comparison to the Calf Canyon fire here. Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak fire is now at 290,000 acres. The Cerro Pelado fire only 7 miles SW of us is at ~45,000 acres.

That photo was taken from Truchas IIRC yesterday. It is basically carving a swath North towards Angel Fire.

the scale of that smoke is awesome and frightening. Is Taos just east of you?

Bought at Costco because it is a nice bottle and someone said the price is excellent, but I’m not a bourbon 🥃 drinker, not even know what to look for in flavor, only hope it is smooth 🤷‍♂️
Those experts please chime in
I checked a couple of reviews, which said is was smooth and a good value for the price. While this is not a ringing endorsement, IMO it means the bourbon is a decent one. At 94 proof it's a bit hot, and probably makes good mixed drinks.

FYI, I have lower end bourbon for cooking and mixing, and drink upper shelf neat. This one is probably in the middle of that range, so you can do anything with it.

Another FYI, one review said the color probably meant the bourbon was aged in new American oak. I discounted that reviewer, since by law, bourbon MUST be aged in new American oak.

Thanks, I will give it a shot one day, maybe on the rocks, but mixing this with something else….hmmm not sure but let’s see how it plays out.

We in Canada are used to that. So many Americans think we live in igloos. I remember when I was a kid I talked to people up here on holiday from the US and they were shocked we had regular homes and hot weather. One family I met had to go out and buy all new clothes cause they only brought winter stuff and it was 100 deg here. Really makes us wonder about your education system also. I think its slightly better now than when I was a kid but I found traveling around and talking to Americans they are still surprised we have hot weather here. And have no idea where most of our large cities are.

My friend says, "Oh, Canada? You mean, where the weather stops?" 🤣 🤣 🤣 Cuz on the US maps on TV, it sure does!!!

I lived on Pine Ridge Reservation for a short while, and city people would ask these indigenous folks how they like living in teepees. :)

My nephew decided to take his Mom (my sister in law) to visit a dairy that milks (mostly) Guernseys for a Mother's Day gift, since both she and my wife grew up on a Guernsey dairy farm. We got invited along. A very FUN day! Not many Guernseys around these parts anymore, what dairying is left has gone to Holsteins. The best part was, they did not know this farmer from Adam. They just found out it was a Guernsey farm, called him up out of the blue with their idea, and he readily agreed to let us come on and gave a full tour of his farm. Good neighborly country folks, right there, for sure.

This is the second lunar eclipse in a row where we had perfectly clear skies for days straight except for the 4 to 6 hours during the actual eclipse. Best laid plans as they say. So instead of a time lapse with maybe 16 images of the moon in different phases I have a composite with 1 that I managed to get during it's red phase.

Same here Mike. I posted the best shot I could get. The moon was visible for less than 5 min and then gone for good.
