UPDATE: About that smoky smell in West Seattle

8:24 PM: Many are asking, so we’ve been sleuthing. Nothing working in our area, and it definitely wasn’t from the small fire we covered on Dumar Way earlier this evening. We HAVE found there’s a new wildfire in Mason County, on Harstine Island [map], and the smoke has been blowing in this direction – Gig Harbor, northeast of the fire area, is complaining – so that could be contributing. We’ll add anything more we find out.

WEDNESDAY MORNING NOTE: “Air resources” get thanks for slowing the spread of that fire, at 19 acres this morning.

    Sorry, I was bbq’ing earlier because it’s too hot to cook inside.

    Sorry, I built a huge smoke ring in my yard to ward off evil spirits… didn’t think there were so many. I blame my ex.

    It makes me quite light-headed, which causes me to be nervous. I don’t want to get riled up, as I have acute angina.

    @Doretta, I hope this light drizzle we’re having helps clear the air and helps you out a little. :>)
