Friday August 21 was the smokiest since 1980 Mt St Helens eruption

Smoke from fires in Washington State



Friday August 21 was the smokiest since 1980 Mt St Helens eruption according to The Spokesman Review in the August 22, 2015 article.
Using the specks from the Airnow.gov website.  Little relief is expected in the foreseeable future.
The forecast calls for continued unhealthy air today and Sunday.

We are using those blue paper masks when we go out. I will see how that goes for me.  Thankfully it is not as bad as it was Friday! 


Praying for all who have lost so much including the families whose members have perished.
