Went for a planned 60+ mile ride yesterday, but turned back early. The smoke is really bad in the foothills.
While riding home, I put my choice/ability to ride in perspective. This is a "First World Problem". I am so fortunate that I can choose to ride, but those in the fire path are going through a lot more grief than I am, and they don't have a choice. They can lose everything.
Thank you firefighters and, for all of you in harms way, I wish you the best possible outcome.
