Smoke

Getting smoked out on the roads this morning.
Last weekend lightning started a few brushfires locally. We're told they're under control, but they're still having to shut down long stretches of highway. Due to the closed turnpike, it took me almost 2 hours to drive a distance of 30 miles. The whole time I spent it moving between 5 and 10 miles per hour, and helplessly inhaling layer upon layer of smoke.
Now I get to work and it seems like the smoke has completely permeated the office. My head is killing me!
On days like this I wish life was more like TiVo and I could stop the action right here, rewind all the way to before my alarm clock went off, then just change the channel.
