Putting up with all this smoke is nothing compared to losing your home or even having that real chance!  Glad to see!

Nice to see that push out of the SW very clearly on satellite. The low level air is moving slowly but things are moving along nicely aloft as expected.

At this point it’s weird to even think that there is actual weather happening up there in the above world.

For sure, though there are signs of real improvement here on the west side finally. The air is still gross and smells fairly strongly but the sun has progressively gotten brighter and brighter. The smoke layer is eroding away from above at a decent pace it seems. At the surface, visibility is still poor of course.

That has to be a huge relief.  Sorry to hear about the animals you lost, but glad to see that you still have your house!

It actually looks completely untouched!  I can't imagine the relief you must feel.

Looking like today will end up a 62/49 spread. Not sub 60 like yesterday but still pretty impressive. Noticed the smoke is slightly less than yesterday but still pretty smoky.

61/49 day here with visibility no greater than 1/2 mile at any point.

Easily the coolest and most socked in day so far here. Should be interesting to see how tomorrow shakes out.

The fact that even after the last three chilly smokefog days PDX will still be running three degrees warmer than the previous record warmest September on record says a lot about how insane the month started off.

Seems like it's been getting pushed back further and further. Clearing smoke is proving to be as difficult as getting Arctic air these days.

Or a cool summer.

The conditions here look the worse they have all day.  Steady downhill during the afternoon.

This is a bit misleading since the last half of September is normally considerably cooler than the first half.

Thanks for all the well wishes. They have just downgraded to evacuation level 2. We can return if we wish, but power will not be restored until at least Friday they are saying. So we will probably not be up for good until then.

Poor Kayla. 

AQI is currently only 15 here so it's staying elevated so far. The sky definitely turned white this afternoon though. Looks like we're in it for the long haul out here but It could be so much worse.
