Meanwhile, On the NC/VA Border...

...the Great Dismal Swamp is on fire.

Reports are that the smoke can be seen in satellite photography, much like plumes from volcanoes can.

I remember reading other stories of the Great Dismal recently; apparently archaeological work is being done to trace settlements made by escaped slaves in the swamp during the antebellum period.
