Yup the central valley is all socked in with smoke on sat images
Yeah that smoke can really mess with ya. We’re getting a heavy dose of it today also
It’s not too bad, nothing like it was. Still sucks nevertheless.
Just be glad you’re not near Hoopa, CA yesterday or today - AQI hit 1400 overnight.
Is this measured in PPM?
Pm2.5 is particle size 2.5 micrometers. AQI is an epa measurement, for their scale. under 50 is good, 300 and up is hazardous.
As far as I can tell. They say you can’t even see there.
This was taken around 6pm last night by Hoopa (not by me) when the AQI was about 650.
It’s pretty lousy up here tonight. Back to breathing mostly albuterol.
here too, got bad in the afternoon and it’s floating around 200 now. Not terrible but I’m using my albuterol too.
We had the red unsun set. Just kinda disappeared
Mullen Fire is up to 133k
If you look at the southern wing, you can see the massive back burn effort trying to keep the fire from jumping the highway
Watching Fox, they say there's a break in the wind and red flag warning are probably going down. Good to hear. I wasn't really paying attention when they first reported it, the way Bill Hemmer stated it, sounded like "there's breaking wind" in northern Cal. What did you guys have for dinner last night? ha.
Well, it is getting close to harvest time so it could be from all the trimmigrants.
The August Complex Fire has officially passed the 1 million acre mark and still only 54% contained. That’s like burning all of Rhode Island and then some.
total state acreage for Kommiefornia is 3M this season
We do have some rain coming in a few days which will help stomp them out on this end of the state.
Y’all need a good 3 day soaker
I’m hoping they plowed enough trees into the Mullen fire to slow it down and keep it from jumping the road
I think we just need to put 20/20 in hindsight and be done with it.
Unfortunately it's only for Saturday and not everywhere.
I guess better than nothing
