We headed out to the pass and down the hill this morning and saw on the west
side of the valley a lot of smoke*** in the air from the fire over your
way. Lots of it. Really like a bad smoggy day. I was down in OC all day
and out of it. Maybe that is why my eyes have been so bad. I;m sorry it is
so bad there. I can't remember if you have AC or not.
That helps a bit.
This fire has burned about 30+ square miles now. It's hard to believe,
The air quality is wierd. We have foggy stuff along the coast, but the
smoke is also there, so it just lays over you. Burning throat and
Ginger in CA
