Cliff Mass' comparison of Beijing to Portland seems to be about as true for the rest of the northwest today. Honestly, today seemed worse...felt a lot like urban, industrial China.

The Okanogan Complex fire has grown to 256,657 acres (401 square miles), surpassing last year's Carlton Complex fire (I recommend reading this article, it's a very good and thorough look into it) to become the largest wildfire in Washington state history. (Source)

I went to Paradise, Mt. Rainier over the weekend.  Friday was pretty good, but Saturday started getting smokier and smokier.  By Sunday morning it was like standing downwind of a campfire, everywhere.  I should have gone to Cape Flattery.
