    Where are you on the SC coast? I'm just being nosy.
    Northeast corner. At least the upper half of Horry County is hit. A popup thunderstorm just started so that should help.

    Interesting map for the smoke regions.

    We have smoke influence here in CA almost every year, but not until later in the summer.

    Confirms the reports of “terrible” this morning from my daughter in NYC and Son2 in DC, and “pretty much normal” from Son1 in New Hampshire.

    I could certainly smell it today, but then, I'm pretty sensitive to that kind of thing.

    I usually am but not with this. I live in a thickly wooded area though. But they were warning that there was danger even if you couldn't smell it.

For a hot minute they considered a Covid variant, discharged her only to have her readmit herself 2 days later.

    No, she doesn't live in a broken down mobile home in Appalachia, she's quite well-off and, my siblings and I had assumed, intelligent, yeah, despite evidence to the contrary. But she brings in mulch by the truckload and insists on spreading it herself. She had to have her entire home sanitized and inspected by the appropriate authority and now hires a landscaping crew to do most of the around-the-house stuff.

    Doxy is what they have me on. Seemed more worried about an infection than Lyme though, so that was good.


    In other news, still smokey in SEPA.

    as someone who spreads seven yards of mulch each Spring by hand, this is a bit concerning, though I have never seen a tick while mulching...always a concern here.
    My vet has told me over the years that ticks carry a plethora of odd diseases, and are suspected of carrying many more, which is why it's good to inspect oneself around here, and to treat the pets for ticks as well...

    Septic Man came and went, no encounters with Turdzilla though he did leave with 1000 gallons of our very best output, and he installed the coveted riser, so it's drinks all around up here.

    I don't know if everyone else pictures you this way, but you definitely are Winston Wolf in my mind's eye. I assume you are curt with people, but only because time is of the essence.

    One of my heroes! That man could get things done, and he appreciated a good cup of coffee as well. I am honored!

    If you are not a lawyer it is imperative that you type that out and not use an unapproved abbreviation.

    So, I was going to take Monday through Wednesday of next week off from work, travel, and see my parents.. Now there is a meeting that I can't miss, that a leader a couple layers up rearranged their calendar for and I will have the primary speaking role.

    1) Yes, they did not consult my calendar
    2) What should I do?
