The Unhealthy Smoke Beat Goes On The BNSF Lakeside Sub
Author: Ritzville

It was another very Unhealthy smoke day in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Northern Transcon. The high-low was 71-54 with the sun completely blotted out by the smoke. Hopefully this will change by Wednesday, keeping my fingers crossed. Very difficult to be outside, a mask is not optional. Here are some of the trains from today and a couple from yesterday. Did filter out some of the smoke in some pictures.

Wow, your air looks even worse than we have in Tacoma.  We're one step below hazardous, at "very unhealthy for everyone," so you might be at "hazardous."   Take care of yourself and stay inside.
