Wildfire Smoke

Wildfire Smoke
Photo taken From Portland's Rocky Butte for A Treasure Hunt #3 Smoke

There are multiple wildfires in Washington and Oregon. Last weekend east winds brought smoke into the Portland metropolitan area. For two days air quality was declared unhealthy. Then the winds shifted and it was back to being sunny.

I have seen that much of NE America and Canada have smoke laden air and forest fires. What a sad a terrible time it is for you all.

You're probably getting a lot of smoke from the Cougar Creek fire near Mt. Adams. I saw a report several days ago that it has reached 23,000 acres. We have a fire here about four miles from my house. Although it was still less than 200 acres yesterday, it's in terrain they can't access. They'll be digging firebreaks a couple of miles to the southeast of it, but won't be able to stop it until it burns up to that point. Smoke is so thick here that people are going to the hospital, and I'm having trouble breathing.

My empathy is with you folks in the U.S. fire areas. I hope it will soon be fire-free for you. I didn't realise that you had so many fires.
