Second Hand Smoke

Yuck! I hate second hand smoke. Well maybe this isn't second hand. It's cold, still and foggy this morning. One or more of my neighbors have their fire place(s) or wood stove(s) going. There's no breeze to blow it away and of course the fog pushes it toward the ground. My eyes are burning and my head feels like it's going to split open.

When I was little we burned wood exclusively for heat and cooking. The chimney was very effecient at carrying the smoke out and I don't remember EVER having a problem with allergies from the smoke. I wonder if it's just something I've developed over time, or if the climate and circumstances make a difference. It's unpleasant is the only thing I know for sure.

That's really awful. I'm sorry you have to deal with something so uncomfortable so close to your house. Sending refreshing breezes your way!

Smoke is very annoying no matter where it comes from and I definitely feel sorry that you are suffering the way you are.

I thought you were pertaining to cigar's second hand smoke but nevertheless, I agree that even neighbour's smoke (chimney smoke or what have you) can be quite irritating at times.

I don't like second hand smoke either. My eyes get irritated.

My eyes are still irritated and I woke up with a headache this morning, but fortunately there's al ittle bit of a breeze now.

Cigar and ciggaret smoke I can stand if there's some ventilation in the room, but wood smoke gets to me.

One good thing, spring is coming. With spring comes wind even when it's cold. :)

Thanks GayleStorm . At least I don't live in town. I'm better this morning and can think positive.

It's probably due to the fog and still air. Fog is horrible stuff! Take care of yourself in that nasty weather.

It's not always pleasant to have to deal with smoke. It can definitely get annoying.
