    Abandon Ship!

    Today I was forced to Abandon ship!

    Nothing wrong with the boat, but something wrong with Seward Alaska!

    It was so darn smoky from the local forest fires I had to leave! My eyes hurt, I was coughing and sneezing, and it was time to find a better enviroment!

          Reminds me of the smoke here in Nanaimo last year at its worst.

            Yep...…….....24/7 irritation with every breath is basically the definition of torture.

            How far away did you have to go to get some decent quality air?

              Went to the house in Big Lake, about 120 miles to the north.

                The Vancouver Island fires and the BC interior fires over the last few years have made the air quality here very harsh. The greasy soot is hard to get off the boat if you don't stay on top of it.
                Good luck. It does make for same blockbuster sunsets and makes you appreciate a hard summer rain.

                  So true! I would REALLY like it to rain right now.

                  The wind shifted and is now coming from the south. It’s tolerable but smoky here right now. At least I can sit in the gazebo and not cough and sneeze

                      It’s Amazing how quickly the smoke cleared up with a good drenching of much needed rain.

                      Thanks!
