Happens every few years where I live. We'll have major forest fires in BC or Alberta and the smoke will drift into the city. It can get so bad you'll be coughing if you go outside. You can practically taste it. And it makes everything look like it's Mars.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get to Oklahoma from here. I think I will just focus on breathing today.

You know where it isn't raining hell fire? Anywhere east of the Mississippi. Maybe, just maybe, if you live in fire country, you should be, you know, prepared for fires. 

PS. The West Coast has burned for millenia before we arrived and will burn for millenia after we're all dead. Plan accordingly.

I just about need a knife and fork to cut up and chew the air before breathing it. Ash is falliing down now.

youngandstupid: I should add, in our post satire world. If the original poster was earnest in their support of raking as a cure all, they are dumb. I'll also eat the requisite amount of crow.


I didn't take "Wouldn't have these problems if they'd just rake once in a while.", with no /s or any other context than the literal words posted, as sarcasm. I'm heard the argument presented seriously before, and had (and still have) no reason to believe the poster was being sarcastic. If he were being sarcastic, or joking, it should have been more obvious. I know this is Fark and all, but disinformation campaigns are a real thing.
