Dealing With The Burn

26 Apr

This week there have been fires burning all around us. There were black clouds billowing from the landfill across the laguna.

Farmers have used controlled fires to clear fields for centuries in Mexico. When you drive through the Yucatán you see where gasoline has been poured along the sides of the road to clear overgrowth. With the drought we’re having it’s a wonder there’s any jungle left.

At times we couldn’t see the other side.

With my asthma, we closed up the house yesterday and stayed indoors. It was another layer of quarantine.

Clearer skies today.
And some days even that’s not easy.

    Oh no. I’ve been reading about the fires in the Riviera May news. I’m hoping you get rain. Being a former Californian, I’m too familiar with drought. Be well and thanks for your posts.

      I can’t remember the last time it rained. We need it so badly.

    So sorry. I was talking to Susanne Graf today and we were lamenting about the clouds and rain (her in Canada and me in Virginia). At least I can breathe, so I’ll stop complaining. Hope it is better soon.

    I remember years ago when there were fires in northern Chiapas. Some got out of control and turned into huge fires. We had smoke from those fires all the way up here in Arizona. It was amazing.
