Holed up indoors...
...actually in the office, due to the chemical sprayer running on the neighbor's field today. They are doing the pre-plant burndown, and the wind has the stench of the chemicals coming in my house so strong, I cannot breathe in there.
Mike couldn't even stand it in the yard. It's not penetrating the office - so far. If it gets out here, I will have to load up and leave.
I hate to complain, since we have a good relationship with the tenant farmer on that place...but this is ridiculous. They should have waited for the wind to shift, or for a calmer day. That's what we have to do when we spray manure on our fields.
I am hoping now that the smell is all that drifted, so we do not end up with a dead lawn and plantings. We have a nice new stand of small maples coming along on that side of the yard.
Am wondering...would bring a candle help dissipate this problem? I need to be in the house, but am scared to head back that way yet. Wanted to work outdoors this afternoon...so hope the wind moves the smell on out soon.
