Looking South from my second-story window, it’s pretty smoky off in the distance to the South. I blame that entirely on fireplaces. Don’t have any idea to what extent people have wood stoves today. I suspect very few do. I grew up with fireplaces, wood stoves, and central heating was not even a vague option. We had a big woodshed, as our neighbors did as well. Electric heating or electric furnaces were not available. You chopped wood daily to keep the woodbox on the back porch full so you could cook and keep warm for another day. It was many years before Idaho Power built lines into our area. Pioneer living. City folk panic when the power goes out They don’t know how to deal with it.
