Try explain that logic to an environmentalist. My grandparents and parents when they were younger never seen a wood tick, first ones they saw were on some animal someone had shot in the park north of here. Years ago there were wild fires and at one time people burnt the fence lines and grass areas once in awhile, this took care of the ticks. Now I can hardly walk across the yard without getting one on me, and lime disease is spreading. As much as some people hate burning stuff, it's a necessary evil, and yes it's natural. If some of these fires had been left to run their course years ago, it wouldn't be the way it is today.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Nope hippies.

But I sure hope the fires stay away from where folks are living. Seems like a great idea to build a home with forest surrounding it until a fire starts ripping though.

With how dry we are a good layer of smoke would be helpful for us and buy our crop a little more time.

Heck all that smoke even makes it down to central ND. Had a slight haze almost all day yesterday. Seemed like it was cloudy instead of sunny.

No filters or anything and it still does not show how bad it actually was. Had a short nap this morning and scared my self wondering how long I slept for since it was dark in the house when I woke up. Turns out it was only a 20 minute nap. Thankfully it is just smokey now and sort of resembles daytime.
