Wildfires in North America: Checking In
I live in New England, and the other day there was a thick haze outside my window. I didn’t think much of it as it was humid that day. But when I went outside, all I could smell was smoke. Within ten minutes, I was having trouble breathing.
Turns out, it was smoke from the Canadian fires— over 1,000 miles away— that made its way over here. I couldn’t believe it. I never imagined that something so far away could still affect me. I mean, I know my lung capacity is crap. But still.
It really got me thinking about everyone that is being directly affected by these wildfires out west. My heart goes out to you.
Wherever you are on the map, how are you? Are the fires affecting you somehow? Feel free to vent here.
