Smoke in the Seattle Area

If you have been seeing reports about air quality in the Seattle area, Check the picture out. It is pretty bad. Usually we have a strong on-shore wind. The last couple of summers it has been off-shore. It is giving me a sore throat. There is a mountain hidden in that smoke.

That sucks. Haven't even paid attention to fires in Washington, just keep hearing about the California ones.

Smells in Denver like I'm camping in the forest... In the NW corner of Denver can only see the foothills, mountains are gone, noticeable haze just looking down 5 blocks of city streets.

What's worse, a lot of that is YOUR SMOKE from the wet coast....

This is really sad, never seen a fire season like this...... Too many fires everywhere.

It has been like that or worse here in UT all summer! All smoke from the big fires in CA. We finally got wind out of the south yesterday and it blew it out.

Smoke fills our streets cant see the mountains or foothills, sun barely shines through. Unhealthy on the index. Going to be a great day I think, sarcasm!!

Could it be from the environmentalists burning SUV's in town to combat global warming?


Suck it up buttercup!
If global warming were true, then why do we have so many snowflakes everywhere!
