Good Questions: What Do I Do About Cigarette Smoke?

Hi, AT!

I have a dilemma regarding my downstairs neighbor. I just found out that I live in a smoking building (no mention of THAT in my lease!) and my downstairs neighbor likes to smoke inside & exhale the smoke out her windows. This results in the smoke wafting directly into my bedroom & living room when my windows are open--which I have to leave open during Seattle summers...

... Do you have any suggestions on how to block or redirect this smoke? I don't have window ledges, but my first thought was to find temporary window boxes that don't have to be attached to the building. Any other ideas? Thanks,

-Anna
