We live in Cold Springs subdivision. The past four years has left us gasping for a breath during winter months. The smoke pollution is so bad, we cannot breathe.
We moved up here for the fresh air. Now we live in a constant state of smoke and haze. Even my indoor animals sneeze and their eyes run all winter long. Even with a special filter unit on our heating unit, we still pull in the pollutants from wood stoves.
If every wood stove burned every other day, we would cut the smoke pollution down by 50 percent. Please be mindful that you are harming others as well as our outdoor animals with your constant burning.
We are gasping for a fresh breath of air in Placerville.
