Exclamation 2013 Wildfires in the US

That time of year again in the US. Wildfires all around. Here's a link to get daily info on what and where:

I'm close to the Black Forest one in Colorado. Not dangerously close but close enough to get a lot of smoke in the air yesterday. So far at 10:30 a.m. it's clear.

I hope no one close to any of the fires is in danger but is safe.

I'm ok; it was just the smoke, probably from the Black Forest one that was a problem for me. I don't live in a heavily forested, fireprone area, or in a small town near one. I'm in urban sprawl - SE suburban Denver, totally surrounded by cityscape.

Even tho that fire is still only 5% contained, the air is clear today so far. But days like Tuesday are danger alert days for kids, elderly, and respiratory patients.

Good to hear. We are in Midwest, so no smoke, but my son's buddy, who has asthma, was having troubles on Tuesday due to heat, pollen and air quality.

I can sure empathize with him as I also have asthma. Hope he's doing ok.
