I have a feeling things will improve slightly over the next few days as most people will be too drunk to burn and would run the risk of self immolation as well. ?

Massive fire on the mountain behind our place tonight, I'd say of a front kilometers long.

I'd suggest that people are more likely taking advantage of lax law enforcement this week.

Our mountains got burned last week. Looks kind of like a lava flow at night and is quite impressive. I am surprised there is anything left when they are done burning but it seems to come back quickly as soon as it starts raining again.

Just going on my lack of any view this morning, this must be the worst day so far. Even the closest mountains are gone and I am feeling the effects more than usual. I have the a/c on earlier than usual and I feel in no hurry to walk the dog.

Thx for the heads-up villagefarang, will keep an eye on the levels and report (though it'd be too late for even the mildly sensitive folks grp as symptoms can trigger really fast within 30-60 mins at high levels)

It's not as bad here, when I made my yearly trek to the old peoples house for my annual blessing I put a hat on it was that sunny.

Got the village dogs barking at me, they mustn't approve of farang in hats.

Good to hear Scea. It clearly isn’t universally dispersed and you will always find pockets of air which are better or worse. This seems to be our day for really thick smoke even though I don’t see evidence of any local burning.

You are right about hats throwing dogs off their game. A familiar dog will often bark at the new shape until it hears a familiar voice.

The wind picked up a bit and things have improved considerably. It sure is hot, though.

It's hard to even function in this heat. We'd planned to ride down to Chiang Rai beach, but I think we'll wait for it to cool down a little.

Thick choking smoke over our house in Rob Wieng today. It's so bad there's a coating of ash on the cars parked in the street. Nice to see they've wasted no time after Songkran to get back to it. :realangry:
