AFEE folks,

I want to send sincere wishes to colleagues affected by the wildfires in the western USA and those breathing the bad air in the west and elsewhere, with smoke and ash spread by the wind. Any time is awful for dealing with this, but COVID makes it all worse. Everyone please be safe. I hope for better, cooler, less windy, wetter weather to help a bit and I am grateful to the firefighters from many states who are fighting these fires.
