I'll be in Washington next week for a long-anticipated bike tour. As I understand things, wildfires have led to closures of some major roads in the north-central part of the state -- and the forecast is for continued dry weather.
If you're in the middle of this, you have my sympathies; if you are involved in the efforts to control the fires, you have my thanks.
How are the efforts against the fires going? How far does the smoke extend? Are folks in Seattle having their asthma get worse from the smoke of fires 50 miles away?
(I can pack albuterol; but sadly, I can't pack up a Philly afternoon shower and bring it with me.)
