Smoke from the #Wolverinefire continues to cause Unhealthy Alert for Eastern Washington 

The unhealthy alert is still in affect for my area of Spokane.  
I want to go out, but it would be very difficult for me.  We pray for rain for relief for all those affected in all the fires in the Western USA.
