Wood Smoke Stories

Can’t breathe all winter

I can’t breathe all winter, can’t afford to move, being driven out of our home of twenty years.

We didn’t invite neighbours’ deadly woodsmoke into our home, any more than we invite tobacco smokers into our home. What can we do?

We’ve spent the little money we have on sealing the house, buying air cleaners, safety masks, even driving away on a cold winter night to huddle in our car praying the wind will change. Not even a letter from my doctor was regarded either.
