We're breathing smoke today from the fires in BC

Visibility is lass than 2 miles and you can see the haze hanging in the fir trees. There's a bad air alert for the northwest counties. The BC interior has been on fire for 2 months and weather service says an easterly flow is puling the smoke down on us. No relief until Friday when some sea air is supposed to move in. Stay safe. I gotta go moisten my towel.

2. We get smoke from AZ, usually

I hate that feeling of having something sitting on my chest. I don't have COPD, but sometimes feel like that's just a couple of big fires away. Big fires aren't just local events. Smoke can foul air 1000 miles away.
