It is 2:15 Thursday afternoon.
We just got home from shopping in Spokane. We watched the smoke from the field burning all the way.
We live north of Lancaster on Ramsey. The burning fields were nowhere near.
The dog cannot go out. My eyes are burning. My throat is scratchy. The trees near our fence line are hazy from the smoke. That close. I am in our office. We closed it up bfore we left, around 12:30. It reeks.
The smoke is supposed to rise. Again, it has settled, right on top of us. I don't have asthma but I have neighbors who do.
The argument goes on. I was under the impression that government was to protect the well being of its citizens, not the profits of businesses in lieu thereof. That would not seem to be the case here.
The bottom picture is what covers our driveway, our sidewalks, our lawn and our decks. It blows around in the constant breeze. It is there for the breathing.
