It's hot - please don't make smoke

Original post made by Your neighbor without A/C, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Aug 15, 2020

To whoever in the neighborhood thinks it's okay to go out at 10pm and barbecue, or for whatever reason to start a chimney fire in the middle of summer--this has been going on for awhile with other neighborhood complaints-- can you please remember that many neighbors do not have air conditioning and rely on being able to draw air through the house when things get cooler? There is only a small window of time when it's possible to really get a lot of air through and this heat wave is miserable.

It's doubly hard when people in the household have asthma. This is a difficult time for everyone, but please be considerate about the smoke. It's absolutely miserable and affects us long after you have eaten your BBQ and gone to bed in your air-conditioned rooms.
