Fresh Air Anyone? YES please!

Well, just when we thought that the air was clearing up a little bit, the smog is back. 
Apparently there was a large fire outside the city that had to be brought under control over the weekend which did not help the situation at all. 

Taken outside our house. Usually there are hills in back ground.
Our street. 
The pollution figures were as high as 263 yesterday morning at 10am. A safe level is 50!

As I talk to people at school, preschool and through my day-to-day encounters, I hear repeatedly about how people are temporarily leaving Chiangmai to escape the pollution.  
Others are being hospitalized with pneumonia, asthma and severe respiratory conditions.  Just about everyone else has headaches, allergies, coughs and a general feeling of being unwell.

I could go on, but I won't.  Please join us in praying for some heavy rain!
