Dave!And so the smoke was even worse today.

I woke up with a raw throat, swollen eyes, and a stomachache so bad that I had to crawl... crawl... out of bed. After force-feeding myself a handful of antihistamines and a box of antacids, I crawled back into bed where I stayed for another four hours.

Needless to say, this is not the best place to be for somebody like me right now...

And so I peaced-out of the valley and fled to the coast where I can actually breathe.

Hopefully sometime soon the wildfires will get under control so I can go home again.

    Fires are so scary! I am definitely glad that they are not yearly things up here like they were in California. I hope it gets under control soon so you can go back home!

  3. Michelle M. says:

    Ugh! That’s awful. Too bad this isn’t a traveling week for you.

    Hope things clear up soon!

  4. the muskrat says:

    Miserable! Grab some Delta miles and fly to Atlanta for the weekend!

  5. Megan says:

    I’d be in a coma by now, so take some comfort in that. Hope you’re feeling better!

  6. claire says:

    They were showing footage of the fires in Wenatchee on the weather channel this morning. Thought of you. Hope the fires get under control soon!
