We have had some smoke the last couple of days, it was bad tonight seemed to be in pockets here and there but thick where it was at.

Haven't seen the sun in probably a week, but it rained a little this evening so it appears there are now clouds above the smoke; I think that's a good sign.

The smoke from the western fires reached the east coast a few days ago.

It's clear here, but was smoky south of here. Depends on where the breeze carries the smoke.

We are under a high-pressure system here in PA right now and should have clear, bluebird skies.

Instead we have a smoke filter. my daughter sent me this pic of the sun two days ago.

It's sunny in Texas. I'm not a native Texan, but I don't think they allow smoke from other parts around here.

It is and I didn't realize it was happening until my daughter sent me that pic. I realized we should have had clear skies due to the high-pressure system so started doing some research. They say the smoke is up around 30,000 feet, up in the jet stream I guess.

The whiter areas are clouds, a patch of cirrostratus along the PA/NY border and stratus along the east coast. If you zoom in you can see all the hazy areas that are smoke. The pic is from 48 hours ago, smoke was just reaching southeastern PA.

We were driving home last night and I told my wife the only time i have seen the skies that color is with smoke.
Never thought it could Reach the U.P. from the west coast.

I'm thinking that all you other states with no fires should grab a lawyer or two and sue oregon,washington,and california for mismanaging the forests and the health impacts it has on you.

I so dislike high pressure systems in summer, like the one that is just about ready to leave , south of here. It is taking up the coastal smoke and swirling it in the jet in a northward spiral east.

In a day or so it is supposed to move out with a low pressure system dropping in from the north , with much needed rain. The rain will help the firefighters on the coast, and clear out the smoke . Can't wait.

Nope, already there. Supposedly will be in Japan by Friday. According to the meteorological geniuses they’re interviewing on the radio all day.

Already in the works. Legal action filed in Salem this afternoon.

We’ve been up above Silverton and Scotts Mills since Labor Day. Tried taking pictures, smoke so thick the camera couldn’t focus. At times visibility down to less an a 75’ Spencer tape. Talking with line guys from here and there, it will take the winter snow and rain to kill these. They will also likely spring up again next season. A lot of people don’t realize contained is not the same thing as out. Volunteer body’s are being sent home and fire crews are being demobilized and sent back to their communities to stand guard, restock and recoup. Evac zones are being down graded and people are being let back in to find what they find at their homes. Immediate threats are all but over, right now. If the wind shifts again all hel will break loose. The valley is getting a good taste of fire the rest of that the deals with to often. Maybe the granola grinders will open up thinking to better forest management practices now.
