Fires can spread uncontrollably and if we don't have water to fight it we could be looking at another Paradise CA.

When the heat and smoke levels are elevated I can't breath, I can't get out and enjoy nature, I can't get out and do anything. I physically shut down. The snow is hard to navigate. But you can ilve

Smokey summer brings health issues to the impaired with compromised systems. Snow will always melt away.

Well it's just snow after all. Way better then a smokey summer. I like not having campfire restrictions when I'm out in the woods

I would rather have lots of snow than air I can't breathe in.

Smoke is more damaging for your health, the environment and the animals. It has a longer lasting and damaging effect on the ecosystem .

Smoky summers mean poor forest management. It's months and months, whereas the snow is only a couple of weeks.

Smokey summer was horrible enough to pollute our air quality so much it made our air toxic. I’ll take the snow any day! No problem there.

Snow is natural and fun. No fun in smoke, Finally, smoke is dangerous to human, but individuals create their own hazard in winter.

Snow is beautiful...you can play in it, exercise from shoveling, brings neighbors out helping each other, and so so much more. There is not ONE thing good about smoke in the air.

The smoky summers active my Migraines, so I would much rather dig myself out from a huge snow storm then be down for weeks with a migraine!

I can't stand the smoke. Snow is awesome and shoveling just crushes calories. Then I don't feel guilty for enjoying a beer or three.

Playing outside in the smoke is terrible. You can play in the snow wherever you are and make winter more fun. Summer gets ruined with smoke

Nothing they say means anything. Even in debate. What say everything I need to know is what they've done in the past. What is their history.

We do not need or want another legal drug. We will see abuse, illegal grows, etc just like legal marijuana. And treatment centers only get maybe 1 % of the users .

Much better option than letting people roll around on the streets self-medicating with weed and malt liquor. It will all be done in a safe clinical setting, not like you can buy it 7-Eleven at 2 am.
