The onshore flow is sparing western WA and OR from the smoke:

I hope fires don't impact any of the places I'll be going in a couple of weeks, but I just wonder how smoky Montana will be.

AQI values in Montana re mostly above 100 (aka hazardous).

The Cascades is the dividing line between good and extremely bad air quality right now, thanks to onshore winds keeping the smoke heading east.

Actually have AQI values approaching 200 today in central Mass up to Quebec.

It's been hazy my way all day, but got much worse in the afternoon. Smelling it (from 3,000 miles away) on a bike ride today is a new and saddening experience for me.

Now that the East Coast is finally feeling what we've had for the past few summers, there'd be some support for federal firefighting aid. We need year-round crews to thin forests between the fire seasons.

Fallout from the Caldor fire.

First Quake (which you've reported several of in the past), then Fallout, what's next? I hope it's not Doom.

Thanks climate change

So you've determined it wouldn't have happened without climate change?

Has there ever been a thread locked on this board that wasnt because it was posted to the wrong board?

The demonic consumption of Earth as depicted in the Doom games certainly would start several wildfires.  That is until the Icon of Sin sucks the entire dimensional plane into a black hole.
