Thanks to our neighbors in the north being unable to control their wildfires, we are under an air quality alert in Indiana, most of the state in fact. It is no joke. This is the view toward our neighbors pig farm, normally you can see it clearly but at around 1 PM today (6/27/23), there is a haze in the air and being outside even for a few moments is causing major throat irritation.
The picture doesn’t really do it justice but that is not fog in the air, it is a L.A. type smog/fog.
The entire region is under an air quality alert…
It is annoying for me but for old people or those with respiratory problems it can be quite serious. That is what happens when you have wildfires that have burned acreage equivalent to almost half the state of Indiana.
Me being me, the wife and I pondered the likelihood that Trudeau and company would set these intentionally just to use them as a pretext for more regulations and decided the odds were quite good. So we are staying indoors as much as possible, no walking outside today like we planned. Thanks a lot Canucks!
