Tho the California fires have diminished in strength and size{knock wood}, the air quality remains subpar. It has become a continual problem, especially when the temperatures climb over 90 degrees. Since it’s been hot for several days, the pollutants hang in the air.

Being at about 1000 feet above sea level, we see what those below us can’t see. They look up and see the sky without being able to discern the smog. We often are a little above it so look right at it and can compare it from above as well. It’s a dismal site. With MCS, I have asthma symptoms when it’s smoggy, so I live in the house, take meds and use an inhaler. It’s very depressing.

I cannot wait for a cool breeze and the need for a sweater…. And we are several weeks away from fall.

Harvest looms on the horizon. Not looking forward to it with the temps so high, every critter in the land seeking food and water(the drought remains severe), the general stress of yields that we know are going to be lower than the past few years due to the drought.

One thought on “The Air We Breathe

  1. And we have had nothing but rain and breezes here in the west of Ireland. Not fair at all. Hope you get some relief soon.
