47. Pictures from NYTimes
I wish I could post the first pic in this slideshow directly because it's worth showing: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2011/09/06/us/20110906...

The first pic should be the fire in Bastrop. Last night I read it was 16 miles wide. As of now, it's still not contained and ash is all over the place.
