You guys are creating enough smoke to block my mountain view here in central Oregon. Fresh snow on it too! It is almost as smoky as when we had the fires burning here a short time ago.

Stay safe down there.

It was smokey here yesterday. At work they handed out face masks (the paper kind like they use in hospitals).
Today the air not so bad.

PG&E shares dropped 11% today. State has asked them to preserve any evidence they may have regarding power lines downed by winds, possibly due to lax maintenance.

Thankfully some years ago I bought a real nice respirator at home depot. I needed an Rx refill, so I got the mask and went out and found a nice light coating of ash on my car. So I turned the hose on it and by the time I returned home again I had a light coating of ash/mud. Air really sucks here everyday so I am staying inside as much as possible. At least no more 106 degree days.
