If you’ve missed it the Northwest is burning. Washington, Oregon and California are inundated with forest fires, producing clouds of smoke that is making breathing difficult. I’ve been coughing all day with the windows shut tight and the air conditioning running full blast. I suffer from congestive heart failure that weakened my lungs, heart and kidneys.
Three firefighters in Washington lost their lives in a vehicle that was consumed by a fast moving fire. The National Guard has been called out to help the huge force of firefighters in their ballad. NOAA has issued a Rd Flag alert for dangerous air quality. Elderly folks or those with difficulty breathing are told to stay inside where air Conditioning can help them breathe.
Conditions are so severe that a backfiring truck started a fire last week. Everything is adding to the danger. Stupid cigarette smokers are suspected of starting a lot of the fires as they habitually toss their butts.
