Reply to comment by UncleCustard in Residue on car? by mattgm1995

Here is some actual information regarding how to cloud could spread.

Here is an article saying that the thing this thread is about isn't related to Ohio.

Here's another.

And this isn't even related to Ohio, and affects air quality.

My point is, it's not related to the disaster almost 600 miles away.

Okay, so it came from Texas or Oklahoma, but not Ohio. Got it.

I doubt it, the timing doesn't make sense with my observations. Our car was getting progressively more dirty over the course of the week, then I got a carwash at 7 pm Thursday. Our car was still clean on Friday.

I can't find a more precise start for the Braintree fire than "late Thursday" or "Thursday night", but it wouldn't have made sense for any residue to get from Braintree to Watertown instantly, then stop completely before the fire was extinguished.

Dust makes way more sense.

It came from a chemical waste fire in Braintree.

600 miles is about 6 hours travel time by wind alone. It's foolish to think their isn't a possibility it wouldn't cause air problems or particles falling. It rained last night, that's a condensation nuclei. Chemicals go up, cling to a cloud that starts to precipitate and it falls back down.

If you want to be afraid then that's on you, but the science isn't supporting your very loose argument.

Not really too concerned but to say it isn't a possibility is kinda odd.

It's not just being "said". It's a scientific factuality. You're being irrational to your own detriment.

And to sit on the very unlikely possibility that we're in any danger from it in Massachusetts is fear-mongering.
