This is a short update on the fire situation in the West. We have unhealthy air quality (170) in Walla Walla today. I’m coughing even inside my relatively clear house, as it is an older dwelling and permeable to the outside air. Hopefully, things will clear up a bit tomorrow, but that all depends on getting some local wind to blow the smoke away… towards another community.
The West is on fire. There is no getting around that fact. This is one of the worst fire seasons on record and it is a couple of months before we may see some major relief thanks to cooler temperatures, shorter days and hopefully, some precipitation.
I’m doing my best to keep quiet and low key during this situation. Will give periodic updates as conditions change.
Over and out.
