Last fall we had a fire erupt just above our house 2 miles. I told the girls to get the marshmallows and we could sit on the porch and roast them.
It was quite the event. Some of our neighbors above us had to evacuate and we were put on standby. The girls moved out to friends house for a week because Mickayla couldn't breath. I finally left a few nights and we slept in the truck where the air was clear. On the weekend we moved to Placid lake (good excuse to go to the lake). The smoke was horrendous. Breathing was quite the chore for about a month.
