1. Woo hoo!

It is a cause for celebration.

But I'll still be wearing my mask everywhere.

4. Good for you!

It's been so bad in Portland it's off the charts. I obsessively check in with AirChek. We're currently at 235 in Seattle.

9. Only at the soup kitchens...

We have people putting furnace filters behind their box fans and running them with the windows closed, and getting brownish deposits on the filters. There's no escaping the miasma...

That's why I'm definitely having a drinking thread on Friday night. Hope you and the others can join me...

13. Totally agree on the shitty week

My husband is bugging me to move now, so is my daughter in Texas.

I love Oregon, we just need to figure out what we can do better to make the west livable for the future.

16. I can make out the tree line on Kelly Butte today

Absolutely could not see the tree line yesterday. A slight improvement. I've heard rumors of a spot of rain this afternoon/evening. Fingers crossed.
