Who would think we went to the Seattle side of the mountains to find "nice" weather .... I called Dan during lunch on Thursday, almost in tears ... because I needed OUT! The fires are still burning through out North Central Washington. Two weeks ago today the smoke started .... It sucks the energy out of us, makes Caden cough like crazy, gives us headaches, sore throats etc!
It's so bad that when we arrived at my parents Friday night (after a four hour drive) we still smelled of smoke. Friday was a normal day - work & school - no picnics outside, just routine stuff. My Dad smelled the smoke as soon as we walked in their house. Sucks!
It was nice to get fresh air ... and for Caden to play outside. He had been stuck inside for 13 days. That's a lot for him!
We are back home to reality. The air is still in the "hazardous" range for the 11th day in a row :o( I "stole" this picture below from Facebook .... the ten day forecast still shows 0% chance of rain in our forecast.
Time to gear up for another week. I'll go put on my big girl panties and suck it up .... its tough!
