Me too and have been praying you are both breathing filtered air
On the two worst days we had to run the A/C, which filtered the air coming in. When we drove to Eugene on the third day, we had the car A/C running and I wore my mask - but not on my nose all the time.

I am a mouth breather 95% of the time, so the mask was covering my mouth.

Now there is a wildfire raging in Idaho! Several families in my Ward have family in that fire's path - they have evacuated, but one family had the foresight to prepare earlier than their local officials told them all to and loaded up their food storage & genealogy in trailers and moved them here.Picture gypsy type of moving. So they are now living with our members.

Hubby is looking into getting help in setting up our three blue 55 gallon barrels so that we can pump the water out. It is rain water that seeped into them over the 5 years they have been outside. He also has been searching online for camping type gear to hold water. 5 gallon water jugs for drinking water. He stands in the doorway of our guest room looking it over. He is picturing where we can store lots of drinking water.

He knows that "store bought" bottled water is not nutritious enough for us to drink and thrive on. Back in Casa Grande AZ there was a sister who refilled gallon & 1/2 gallon juice jugs with filtered water. They had dedicated a wooden 6'x8' shed behind their garage just for drinking/cooking water. They had rain barrels at every corner of their house and garage as well as all along the back of the house that they filled them selves with water from the outside water pipes [didn't rain often enough to fill them but it looked good] that water was for flushing and washing.

We will evacuate if threatened by fire, but otherwise we are bugging in. Walmart has two packs of small propane canisters on sale - need to stock up on them, as well as collecting firewood. Small pieces of firewood to go into my volcano oven, and buy BBQ charcoal along with 45 gal rough neck brand garbage cans to store the charcoal in - keep it dry. That can be used in the volcano oven too.

I so want to get a good generator. But Hubby isn't keen on storing fuel to operate one. He has been researching solar style to keep our freezers/fridge/hot water heater running.

Still haven't found anyone selling vegetarian beef substitute. Haven't repackaged aka vacuum sealed in two serving packets the powdered eggs, butter, milk yet.
