At first, ɪ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ ꜱᴏᴍᴇᴏɴᴇ was cooking ᴄʜɪɴᴇꜱᴇ or having a BBQ. Then the smell became much more potent and noxious. Smoky air from forest fires tend to pollute the skies a few days every summer.
I have closed the windows in my apartment until the haze diminishes. I love having my windows open, even in the winter.
Thankfully, the smoke forecast for ꜱᴇᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ is looking better, though we — meaning the ᴘᴀᴄɪꜰɪᴄ ɴᴏʀᴛʜᴡᴇꜱᴛ — could certainly use some on-shore flow — air that comes off the ᴘᴀᴄɪꜰɪᴄ ᴏᴄᴇᴀɴ — mixed with precipitation and minus any lightning.
