What’s Going On Around the Valley
Happy Thursday everyone! :)
Looking to the sky, it appears the smoke has not decided to clear as much as we had hoped. Looks like our bad air quality will continue until Friday (CLICK HERE.) So if you struggle with respiratory issues or are sensitive to what's going on, please make sure to try and stay inside as much as possible. Not even a bad idea to wear a face mask at this point.
We can't keep everyone indoors, though, so I figured we might as well go through what's happening around the valley that you can get into! :)
