I went to Sonic restaurant for the 2nd time (not big on fast food) and they serve you on roller skates. Poor girl had to pull her shirt up over her mouth. I could really relate. In just an hour or so, mountain town is thick with smoke and its tough to breathe.
The way you manage forest fires is with proscribed burns, so they advise folks like me with asthma to stay in the air conditioning. AC? when it gets down to freezing at night!?
