    the wildifres down here suck.....

    Smoke everywhere.

    Turns out practically every county in central FL except this one is going through lesser wildfires as well....so the entire area is a giant smoke-clouded mess.

    It's giving me respiratory issues, so I can't even imagine what it's doing in the areas the fires are actually happening in.

    Either way, I hope they are doing alright. I see this as an asthma sufferer's worst nightmare.

    You could probably use a 3m half face with some organic filters.

    I thought Central Florida burned down about 7-8 years ago! I remember driving to Tampa through smoke, and having to keep the vents closed in the car. Looked like some kinda "day after" scenario.

    I feel for ya, Cat. ((hugs))

    It's clearing up now, thanks to the winds....but it was just horrible.

    Lots of people at work here got sent to the doctors for vomiting from smoke inhalation and such. I'm doing alright, coughing like mad, but alright.

    It just trips me out how nasty the air got here, when the fires are a significant distance off.
