fire season has arrived


Not my favorite part of the year, but rather inevitable. First off, I am no fan of hot weather. Secondly I am sensitive to forest fire smoke … makes my eyes burn and respiratory system complain. So I watch the reports with greater than average interest… and spend more time indoors with high-performance air filters running.

I have done significant experimenting with available Internet tools for fire and air quality monitoring. I share my favorites here.

If you find one or more of value to you, I recommend bookmarking them yourself.
