Mexico Burning Sugar Cane Stalks
Does the smoke from this get as far as you are? It sure drifts here. Yesterday when I turned onto the highway to drive to the town to the west of us to buy some Nolan Ryan beef it looked like the whole town was on fire from the smoke. I kept watching for a fire somewhere but didn't see anything or hear sirens. When I got home and watched the news they announced Mexico is burning the stalks to get rid of the trash after harvest. They do this every year but I always forget. I don't think the smoke is good for us. I wonder how far it goes and if anyone feels bad effects from it?
