Tabonga 1,975 Member · Posted August 16, 2020 Share Posted August 16, 2020 There are four large fires in the mountains that have burned over 100,000 acres and we are seeing the effects in the Denver metro area. Lots of haze and burnt wood odor in the air. Both Mrs. Tabonga and I have irritated eyes and the swamp cooler just sucks in the smell. I went out this morning and down the streets I could see the haze - which is bad enough that I could only see a couple of the taller buildings in downtown Denver - where normally we have a pretty good view of that. While it is basically inconvenient for us I do feel sorry for anyone whose homes may be threatened - and it has to be miserable fighting those fires. The short term forecast is for high temps and only widely scatter rain showers. We have had it worse - one of the times there was a large fire we actually had ash settting down everywhere. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
