With the entire Northwest on fire, it’s been smoky here for what seems like forever. Below is the view from my deck this morning, looking south and then west.
Seventeen miles away, is the view from outside our industrial park suite (below).
I’d joke about it but there has been significant loss of homes, and loss of life also. Feelin’ a little queasy here, if I do much physical work in this stuff. It’s hard to imagine what the firefighters are going through. It’s one thing to risk life and limb, working like a mule in high heat and rough terrain, and something else to do all that with no possibility of getting a breath of fresh air.
Here’s a recent overhead view.
