Crusher...The waves were kicking up on Mono this evening and blowing towards the east kinda like the forecasters predicted...Just come up..The smoke is more of an asthetic detriment than a health issue...And if you enjoyed Apocolypse Now you might like the special effects that are currently happening..There's a bit of eye irritation and scratchy throat but it's minimal... and besides there's not that much to see up here anyway...RJ

With all of the layoffs and defections from Mammoth Lakes ...how do you know that RJ doesn't/didn't work for the city?

Even worse- maybe he used to work at June!

I hear you have to hate the public to get a public works job.

This smoke thing is so blown out of proportion. Just climb, run etc etc as normal - what a bunch of sissies!

You guys... our concern was for our older (but active) parents and our nephew who is 7 and has asthma. Mr. Crusher and I spend a lot of time up there so not "seeing" the sights is no buggy...just a long family weekend get together where we hope no one gets smoke inhalation, etc.

Have a good weekend all of you and thanks for the help.

I've lived in Bishop for fifteen years and this is definitely the worst I've seen it.I'm with Eric....No White mtns,no Tom this A.M. When I first moved here the Panamint Fire was going on and there were actual smoke clouds blowin' down my street,but you could get above it.This one doesn't seem so.Funny tho,I was flyfishin' up South Fork yesterday and it was bluebird and still decent in town.This morning...Not so much.

"This smoke thing is so blown out of proportion. Just climb, run etc etc as normal"...


Heavy smoke in the air and people such as myself can find themselves quickly in a world of serious discomfort, boarding on real TROUBLE...

Telling people to go out regardless of the smoke isn't real bright...

The smoke is bad enough here at times that anyone with potential health risks should avoid the area.
