I think about it. My roots are here.
Last year I just up and left with the trailer and headed east. I ended up going from "extremely hazardous" air quality to merely "unhealthy". We shall see how this year goes. So far, it is windy today and a little bit hazy. Nothing terrible like last Sept. I'm about to go on a bike ride as it is ten degrees cooler today. Yesterday, we only got up to 105.
