Hack, hack---cough----cough

Ha, you thought I was going to post something about a bug on board a ship didn't you? No, we are breaking heat records right and left throughout all of Alaska this season. I've lived here all my life and this is probably the hottest. Trouble is, except for Southeast Alaska "Panhandle" and south central Pacific coastal areas, which also are experiencing record setting hot, we are afire. Forest fires everywhere, mostly caused by lightning strikes. And forest fires mean "SMOKE".

Lot of visitors with respiratory problems are canceling, so I shouldn't even post this, but Mom said, "be honest". Our Chamber of Commerce in Anchorage is just going to have to do something about this. LOL

Pray for rain.

Sorry to hear about the forest fires. Alaska is so beautiful and the wilderness so vast, that this is not only sad but scary. Hope they are contained and extinguished soon.

This time of year seems to be the time for fire either by nature or human error. The province of British Columbia is fighting some major ones there now.

Well....those Cuban cigars aren't helping either heheheh….
