gaah.gif Friggin 3 wild fires here, not so bad as 2010 yet. One fire across the river that if it jumps could be a problem to the city. I went to work for a few hours this morning, was like being at a campfire with the smoke in your face. I left but it's no much better at home.

But at least the beer is cold beercheer.gif

chuckle.gif hug.gif It's been pretty hot the last week so would be anyways but just the start of wind and heat. Kinda concerning, BC has 15 million Ha of dead standing beetle kill pine, if that goes up it would be like a global nuclear winter for a week or 2. See what happens dunno.gif

lol.gif Octo hug.gif cold beer puts it all in perspective beercheer.gif

It's forest fire not chemical or anything but still burns your nose and throat.

carbon monoxide for example is a dangerous gas that results from incomplete combustion of carbonic (organic) materials. :/
i'm just a bit worried.^^"

edit:

dizziness headaches clouding of consciousness vomiting exhaustion blue skin or mucosae (carbon monoxide poisoning: light red skin color!) unconsciousness/absence circulatory collapse - if you have any of those symptoms leave the area immediately and get to the closest hospital. don't try to drive by yourself if it can be avoided.

I think it's difficult to escape forest fire smoke. We get smoke from Russian forest fires sometimes covering half the country. It's nasty. Not good, no.

I read that there are more wild fires burning right now than in all recorded history.
