We in New Mexico usually have nothing to complain about this time of year except lack of rain. Okay so I personally complain about the wind and don't like the heat but that's just me. But like much of the rest of the nation, we have had strange weather.
Combine the AZ fire which now has burned 150,000 acres of some of the most beautiful "Arizona Alps" and a fire near Silver City in the southwest section of NM and here we sit in a pot of pollution that has given us fabulous blood red sun rises and sunsets but headaches, coughs and some serious health risks for those with breathing problems. Don't know if you remember my bouts of pneumonia....lurgy I think Cee calls it, but I'm really wheezing and coughing and moving slow.
Yesterday we were out taking pictures for our participation in the Mad Tea Party and this is a picture of GK's eyes because of the smoke in the air......and it was pretty clear at that time.
It's it just mind boggling when you contemplate how much we need the rain so that our forests don't burn away and further east so many folks still can't get back into their houses because of the overabundance of water has ruined everything then own in the floods.
Makes you kinda ponder stuff huh?
