Monday, November 12, 2018 / 2 miles
So we end our coffeeneuring with a whimper in the smoke from a huge wildfire about 150 miles north of us. The weather patterns are not being kind to California this fall. We had a smitch of rain on October 1, and nothing in the immediate forecast. No change to smokey weather in the forecast either. Bill has it worse than I do. The people burned out of house and home have it even more worse.
The air is unhealthy. Today it’s a bit better – only “unhealthy for sensitive groups” such as the elderly and asthmatics. So I’m just going to do a short ride to my local sbux and then through the neighborhood to get the requisite two miles. There’s a milky haze over everything. Can’t smell the smoke like we could the first few days of the fire, but if I’m outdoors for long I can feel it in my throat and sinuses. Sorry to end on a downer but it’s a sad situation for California.
