This Friday is all about smoke from the massive fires burning just under 100 miles due NW of us, one fire is now the size of the City of Seattle.

This picture was taken at 4:36pm pdt and shows how bad the smoke must be 90+ miles from us at its center.

Air Quality levels in Spokane 70 miles further east from us: http://www.khq.com/story/29854375/air-quality-in-spokane-reaches-unhealthy-for-all-groups

For us there is potential relief as the winds pick up to 45mph gusts and we switch back to Dust, but that only makes the situation more difficult for fire fighters trying to get some level of control.
