Smoke gets in your eyes

Smoke from the wildfires in southeast Georgia (350,000 acres burned!!!!!) has made it up to Atlanta and the city is bathed in a cloud of woodsmoke that's not only hazy but stinky. The elevator shaft in my building was like a chimney this morning. Ugh. If it's like this here, it must be hell on earth closer to the fires, which are 4-5 hours away by car.


Meanwhile, even aside from the smoke and smog issue, I feel really lousy. My lungs are killing me still, and will until I get my hands on more Singulair, my nose is stuffed up, I've got a headache, my eyes are dry and itchy, my right hip continues to ache, and I'm totally exhausted. Not a happy camper :(
