Last couple days have been OK but there's been some really bad smoke all over. Not good with Mrs being asthmatic. Visibility has been as bad as a kilometre or less at times. Thing is, we're nowhere near any fires directly but not much you can do when the smoke has made it all the way to south America now.

Might give you an idea of scale..

I'm at the pointer in the bottom left of frame, south Eastern Melbourne suburbs, fires are east and north east of Victoria and up in New South Wales. Massive amount of land burning with two huge blazes becoming one even bigger fire spanning two states.

Smoke is back again and worse than the other day. Visibility down to about 1.2km or less than a mile. Classified as hazardous in our area and Mrs is having a bad time with it. Not supposed to be any better until tomorrow afternoon as there's absolutely no wind right now.

That's pretty hazy.
Any chance you've got a respirator around that might fit her? Even some n95 dust masks might help filter it enough to help her a little.

Stay safe man

Yeah photo doesn't show the full effect, like when you try to get a close up of the moon... never works. Anyway, it's been better, rained a bit yesterday evening but not where the fires are going on. At least it cleared the air somewhat. Best course of action is usually for her to come to the workshop with me because it does a much better job of keeping the smoke out than our drafty house. Otherwise it's at home with the aircon running. Worse case scenario I've got my painting respirator mask for that WW1 look...
