    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. :eek1:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
