Parts of Western Washington, the Spokane area, Missoula, and Bozeman all have layers of smoke from wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. We've finally run out of luck for the year.

I've got hazy conditions all the way in eastern Massachusetts this morning from them, as I did in 2020 and 2021.

600-or-so acre grass/brush fire about 10 miles from me, but what else is new? Besides, it's raining this morning so we're probably good, or at least better.

So far it really hasnít been that noteworthy of a fire season in central California.  The biggest news story was the fire that got into Mariposa Grove in Yosemite.  The trees were fine given the park has a suppression system.

Guess it's time to start locking down access to the great outdoors. We're too stupid as a society to handle basic rules like "Don't bring fireworks into a dry, crispy forest" it seems.

They'll just bring the surveillance state to the woods.

Satellite view of Washington from a few days ago:



The winds have since shifted to cover more of the Puget Sound region.

Some of the Canadian wildfire smoke made it down to the surface across Chicagoland on Friday after a cold front/showers went through. Visibility dropped to a 3-5 mile average and smelled like a campfire much of the afternoon until a lake breeze helped clear things up a bit.

Had my share of smoke on a bike ride for about a half hour today between Hingham and Quincy Mass. Visibility dropped to about 5 or so miles and was smoky enough to make me cough a few times. Got abruptly better once I approached Boston, which I think had to do with the wind direction and proximity to water.
