Gradually a Wee Breeze — Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Finally, helped thin the smoke

Lifting the thick and heavy layers

Allowing more air to circulate

While somewhere else the embers

Keep sending sparks and fire onto ravaged earth and into the sky.

My prayers are with everyone. I am so sorry this is happening.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Yeah. I’m so sorry for those affected. Terrible. Forest fires are not something that I ever recall hitting our area…at least, not in my lifetime. Ken stated that he remembered some fires in our Appalachian Mountains area but, it’s been some time ago. It wasn’t too long ago that the Gatlinburg area in TN was burned badly. Ken also said that the Piedmont can get brush fires but, I’ve never seen any.


  2. You all need to wear masks when you are outside. Not the kind that protect other people, but the kind that protect your lungs. You can use the surgical masks but turn the darker blue side to your face. and change every day or more often if it’s bad. You also need an air purifier for the house. We had smoke here for weeks last year, and it is a real health hazard. So sorry you are getting California’s smoke. I don’t understand why we don’t have better fire fighting capacity! Whole towns are burning here.

    Take care and be careful.
