Smoke from Georgia fires, still linger in neighboring Tampa area.
However, it's finally clear over the lake this morning .

Officials said the blaze started April 16 when a tree fell on a power line.
It has spread rapidly through forest parched by drought, destroying 22 homes in the area.

Sad to see, everything seems very dry around here this year. Already have to run the sprinkler or else the grass is turning brown.
