I Can See Clearly Now, The Smoke Has Gone

This is what we were living with for 11-ish days …

Just before sunset

My phone camera didn’t do the colours justice. The sun was blood-orange red, and the sky a sickly yellow.

Then the wind changed, the temperature dropped below 30°C, and two days later the sky looked like this …

Blue skies, shining above

Unfortunately the air didn’t clear in time for Mrs Widds and I to avoid getting sick, probably that dastardly ‘chitis in our broncs. We did manage to off-set our timing though. Mrs Widds is currently clawing her way out of it and I just collapsed into it. Thankfully we prepared lots of chicken soup.

  1. Hope the worst is over, and the rest, soon. It’s one thing after another, isn’t it?

      Thanks … I kinda feel like this entire year has been about getting sick, being sick, and recovering from being sick.


      • Me, too – I coughed from November 1, 2016 to four months later, and then ended up with heart problems and hospital stays and stents and drug problems and zombiehood conferred by said drugs and…

        That’s one of the main reasons for moving to California if I possibly can.

    So sorry to hear you’re sick again! I’m sick too, so I’ll be thinking of you as I wallow in my own misery.

    Smoke is awful and always triggers extra problems if you’re prone to them. {{hugs}} I hope you’re both feeling better soon.

  9. The smoke from the Canadian fires reached all the way down here, and there were a few days where the air-quality was horrible. I can’t imagine what you were dealing with. Cool temps and clear skies, finally (except it feels like September!). I hope you feel better soon.

    Even Vancouver was affected by the darn smoke. I had a friend from Israel staying with me. Each time we went anywhere, she complained of the car exhaust fumes, until I told her it might be smoke from the fires.
    I hope it’s gone for good, and you both will be OK soon.

  12. Ack! Hope you’re feeling better again soon.

    We drove through a sky like that in Eastern Oregon once. Uncanny — and scary.

    We’re hoping so too. 🙂 … I feel for the people up where the fires are who’ve been living under that kind of sky, and worse, for months.


  14. I dislike it when the Husband and I get sick at the same time. That’s when I wish Molly the Cat could make and bring tea and juices to us. Hope you both feel better very soon! Big healing hugs to you and the Missus.

  15. I am glad things are improving. Friends have been posting images on social media and I’ve been worried. I hope you feel better soon!
