West Coast is burning up! Aus and NZ to the rescue!
Warm (pun intended) thanks to Australia and New Zealand for sending us aid!

We had a very smoky weekend here - but Oregon is in way better shape than Washington, Northern CA, BC Canada, ALaska, Idaho....

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

It cuts both ways, Daria. American firefighters have come to Australia in the past when we needed help. There's something special about these guys - they can't rest when somebody needs assistance.

Good luck, and I hope your home stays safe.

Here in southern Alberta, they are reporting our air quality index as 14/10!
Should blow over in the next few days I hope.
Good luck.

Thank you!

Air quality is much better today - but it may be a very long time before some of these fires are out.

I know American's go all over the world. We advertise that pretty well - we seldom hear about others coming here to help, whether it is because we don't like admitting we needed help, or because no one thinks we ever need help, I do not know. I am just a peon Big Grin In this case, it has been widely trumpeted that we are being helped - and those of us close to the situation are very grateful!
