smoke update

Since the last time I posted the smoke really rolled in. When we open
the patio door the smell immediately hits you! We didn't go out or let
the cats out all day. Eventually I did go to the store, didn't seem so
bad at street level.

Video I took in front of our apartment yesterday around 18:30 our time.

The smoke returns

Yech, the smoke has returned in force! Yesterday it wasn't so bad
towards the afternoon, this morning I could smell a little bit in the
air and just make out a cloud rolling in from the north (Argentina).

Low and behold, it's here. We have all of the windows shut, Chris has
been coughing and wheezing, it's nasty.

Attached is a photo I took from our balcony.

Book Corner - finished reading "Fast Food Nation"

Just finished "Fast Food Nation", what an eye opening book. The author
has his critic's, as does any author, but I'm going to place my money on
his facts, which are pretty scary, especially about the meat packing
