This morning's local news listed the air quality in all 5 counties is it's broadcast area as unhealthy, usually it's just one or two and the rest are listed as moderate. This is smoke from the still burning Rim Fire that has been burning for 3 weeks now and is 3 hours north of where I am. It is still listed as only 80% contained but it has not increase in acreage. If it's this unhealthy here imagine what it is like for the locals. I noticed last night at sunset there was a streak of smoke across the valley but this morning it is everywhere.
Poor sheep are really not enjoying this summer, wonder if they make gas masks for sheep, may have to invest in some if this summer never ends.
