Wednesday – Smoke and Shed

The smoke from the Dixie fire has kept us mostly indoors this last week, but today the air quality was good enough to get outside for some work. I got the roof on the shed:

Just needs some trim and the doors

Hopefully I’ll get the doors built tomorrow.

And just because the world needs more cat pictures:

Socks Sleeping
Boots sleeping

The smoke situation here isn’t clearing up and we’re just having to adapt.

  1. Aw, your kitties are adorable! And I’m hoping we’ll all get a break from the smoke soon. Fingers crossed for rain…

    I heard from a good friend in Massachusetts saying they have experienced bad air quality/smoke from the fires burning in the west. I’m glad you were able to get outdoors enough to continue working on your shed. It should be very useful!

  3. Hope your air quality improves more. The shed is looking great but, if I’m honest, not as great as though sleeping kitties. 😉

    Animals make everything better. If you hadn’t said so, I would’ve believed you posted two pictures of the same cat.

    We’ve watched the dreadful scenes from California in every BBC news broadcast, and let’s hope that things start to get better soon. It’s such a pity that nobody can create rain from the waters of the Pacific

  6. If it’s not one thing it’s another. Thank goodness for the company of pets.

    I think about you every day living so much closer to the Dixie fire. For the moment we’re getting better here, but my thermometer says 98. Can’t seem to catch a break this summer.

    • We’re about 60 miles from the fire and depending on the wind our air quality index is between 100 to 200 (unhealthy to hazardous). The weather service announced yesterday that we’re expected to break a record and have more than 20 days this summer over 100. Life isn’t so fun at the moment.
