Went to see Cindy's Mom

Riverton, Utah          High 94 Low 66

Today we went to see Cindy's Mom. She is at home and seemed to be doing OK, Linda told us she had a bad night last night. She was able to spend some time talking to us even though she acted quite weak. She told us she spends a lot of time sleeping. She also told us her insurance wouldn't let her go into the hospital for a while. She said she has used up all her benefits. She did act a lot better than the last time we saw her.

I forgot to mention it but we had smoke from all the forest fires all the way home from the middle of Oregon. The air in Salt Lake is very bad. There are several fires burning in Utah. The biggest was near Strawberry Reservoir and burned several homes and forced evacuation of up to 1000 homes. Presently two fires located at the northwest corner of Utah have combined and have now burned 100,000 acres. It is in ranching country and no evacuations have been ordered. I got a picture looking at the mountains east of us to give an idea of how bad the air is.

Very faint view of the mountains.
Usually we get a clear view of the mountains but we can barely see where they are.

Whenever we are outside we can smell the smoke. The heat has not helped fire fighting efforts. Some of the fires were caused by lightning but the one near Strawberry Reservoir was man caused.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Gosh, seems the entire west coast in on fire, and now Utah. Hope they get it out quickly.
