Yesterday when I was checking the air quality before going out and mowing the lawn, I noticed that the town of Nespelem had and Air Quality Index (AQI) of 500.
Bacisly if you went out side – you couldn’t breathe.
On and FYI, the middle of August is the START of our fire season……..
Like today – high winds expected – gusts up to 65mph – all over the fire area.
And again a great big thank you to Republicans especially our very own wonderful US Representative Cathy Dumber Then A Pile Of Rocks McMorris Rodgers for voting in the budget to cut funding for wild fire fighting.
It turns out this is the worst wild fire season on record so thanks for cutting the funding.
