IT'S AWFUL!

An inversion layer is holding all of the smoke from the many fires around us close to the ground. There are no signs of it going away any time soon. It's horrible. Everyone is being advised to stay inside and not breathe the outside air.

This morning I spent 15 minutes unloading a few things from the truck. Within that span of time my clothing smelled like I'd been sitting around the campfire roasting Smores and having one hell of a good time all the while singing the tune, WELL SHUT MY MOUTH AND CALL ME GOOBER!!

NOT!

Those of us who have spent most if not all of our lives in the Golden State have never seen anything quite like this. Small towns around ours are being threatened by fire. Homes have been evacuated, people displaced. I don't want to even think about what the fire and smoke are doing to live stock and small animals.

It's not looking very pretty in this part of the USA.

That sucks! Stay safe Bob! It will be interesting when you have to take the pooches out for a walk...won't it?

The dogs go out to quickly do their thing and then back in. No walks for those puppies until this deal is over.
