How is the Smoke Affecting You?
When all of these wildfires got started the smoke seemed a little annoying but it’s something we’ve all come to deal with living here in Montana. Now that the smoke is heavier and more consistent it is affecting people in many different ways. Some people it affects their throat, personally I have found my eyes to be more sensitive and it’s a little more difficult to sleep at night. We all need to make sure we are doing our best to avoid the smoky conditions outside if possible.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention had some great tips on how to decrease your risk from wildfire smoke. Although to me the biggest thing is just limiting my time outside. It’s crazy to think that as a 31 year old guy in decent shape that I would even need to think about something like that but that is the reality. Be safe, and make sure you keep an eye on your pets and neighbors as we are all dealing with these conditions together.
