Smoke gets in your eyes (and nose)

By From page A5 | April 28, 2014


What is it about country living that turns so many people into fire builders? It’s a rare spring day when I can leave my windows open. Invariably, the smell of smoke starts wafting in from someone’s bonfire. El Dorado Disposal service is terrific about giving out extra green cans and making extra bagged green pick-ups if requested. Yet, the preference still seems to be “burn it yourself.”

Not only is the smoke bad for our health, but burning in the forest can be dangerous. I wish more people would have their green waste hauled away rather than burn it themselves, so we could all enjoy some fresh air.
