    There are fires all over the west. In my state, Montana, we have several larger complex fires going on. It was cool last night with a low of 42F, and a bit of rain. A friend of mine works for the Interagency Fire Center in Boise. He always says that the fires will be out when it snows.

    I thought the default was "Blame Canada"

    But seriously, the Space Needle is missing, and the sun is red, is this the end times?

    We were getting smoke from California too. They took to smoking weed a bit too much.

    We had a fire come into the Tri-Cities and destroy 5 homes while damaging 3 others. I saw about it only in our local media and Spokane's after driving down to Oregon to see relatives and seeing the black on the hills going into Kennewick and wondered if it had hit the city.

    The smoke cleared a little yesterday, but is back this morning. I had to leave the coast from vacation as the smoke was too thick to enjoy the beaches and even Portland was quite smokey along with the whole I-5 corridor.

    Seattle weather says it should clear by the weekend. The wind has blown what has drifted over the sound back eastward.

    I miss the old Pacific Northwest: fewer fires, less smoke, and a lot less people.

    We have had a lot of smoke in Minnesota from fires in Canada. Sunsets have been spectacular, the moon looks orange, and they have health warnings all the way to the Minnesota River. One day it looked like an eclipse was going on. It helped when we had several inches of rain to clear things up.

    That's a lot different than here as there is a mountain range in the way. While they get 300 days of rain a year, we get 300 days of sun a year where I live and temps near 110 in the summer. Right now visibility is only about a mile or so.

    There sure are a lot of current active fires in the west. I notice that the east has none, but they've had a ton of rain to deal with too. Sadly it doesn't show those in BC. Send rain now!!!!!!
