sorry to hear pal,,, it's just God's way of saying he doesn't much care for Californians.. he's more of a temperate climate kinda guy..
We've got fires here in Tooele, Utah and it's hard to breathe. We also get the smoke from the California and Nevada Fires. If it gets to bad I use my Oxygen Concentrator during the day.
I'd be moving. I mean, why stay? That's gonna mess up your health or kill you, nothing is worth your health bro.
You guys been having lots of fires. Seen some were deliberately set.
