Out of the Window

Here’s the view out of the window. Nothing but smoke. We’re sealed up with inside ventilation and exhaust fans running, and we can still smell it. Outside, it smells like we’re breathing in a campfire. Gaah.

    It really is a frightening situation, isn’t it? It hasn’t been quite as bad here, but it’s still scary. Here’s hoping it all eases up soon.

    I am sorry you are having to deal with that. It sounds like a couple of years ago when we were near to the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties for over a month. We lived with the smell which seemed like forever, and either wore masks or did not go out much, but the visibility was not so much affected. That view is very scary.

  3. Very scary indeed! Hope you get some rain soon!

    That’s ten times worse than our air. I hope the Westerlies blow it all away.

    Stay safe. Stay healthy. Don’t breathe in the yucky air.

    Really bad. You and my brother have sent some really scary pics. Let’s hope the rain does the job. I can only imagine how people with asthma and other respiratory issues are dealing with it.

    What happened to the rainy northwest? I guess we know the answer to that one.

    Believe it or not, some of the smoke from California got caught up in the jet stream and made it all the way across the country. It is causing a smoky, cloudy look to the skies here, nothing like you are suffering, but definitely affecting our weather a little. It will only be an October-like 67 degrees here tomorrow.
