When the winds come from the east, we can smell the smoke and the air quality is so bad that the government recommends we limit our outdoor activities. Mostly our wind comes from the west, but geez.

Well, right now the air quality is "Unhealthy" which still means limiting outdoor activity but the previous time this happened it was "Very Unhealthy."

On the downside, the wind has been blowing steadily from Canada for days. Cool your shit, Canada.

At least you're not in the part of Texas where the forecast was 50" of rain within a few days?

You're complaining as if Canada was protesting Trump by setting itself on fire.

The NY Times has a feature comparing how much rain Houston has gotten with average rainfall in your area. Houston has had 6 years worth of San Diego rainfall in the past week.

Houston should grow a rainforest.

Some kid set off some fireworks in the Columbia River Gorge.

Nice, artisanal, local American fires. Like God intended!

Air quality index is back up to "Unhealthy". Not far from "Very Unhealthy!" We have a little light ashfall Monday but no real accumulation.
The Portland area, meanwhile, saw up to an inch of ash from the fires.


Hoping the local kids get a fire day from school?

If you want to see the data in real time:

Looks like China may be better off than Portland... Or is it:
http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/755525.shtml

Qiu Qihong, an engineer of the Beijing Environmental Monitoring Center, said US and China use the same function to determine AQI figures from six different pollutants. However, he explained that the UStates uses a stricter system to determine what numbers to plug into the AQI formula. The formula requires a range of values of PM2.5 to calculate the number, and the US and China are using different ways to determine this range.
