Smoky Days snd Smoky Nights

“Smoke smoke smoke that ciagarette,”

Says the classic song but today you don’t have to smoke if you live in Reno/Sparks/Tahoe/Virginia City, etc.

We get smoked out every time there is a fire and it’s getting old.

If I was a songwriter I’d write a song called: “Don’t need no cigarettes just go outside and breathe.”

I worry about all the people fighting these fires. I grieve for all the people who have lost everything.

I have a new mantra: Fire Sucks!
