    Where i'm at in Northern Nevada our air quality is poor due to all fires in California. Reno closed schools 3 days this week due do air quality and people are recommended to stay inside. I hope you all keep safe and hope they get a handle on some of them soon.

    You are likely right. It ordinarily gets much worse when those winds start up. The heat you have had recently has dried things out so everything is ready and waiting for the winds.

    We are seeing some light smoke in the area up here today from the fires. It isn't nearly as bad as it was last year when they had big fires in Washington.

    I've never had it get this close.

    That yellow zone is about 4-5 blocks from me but I do have a bag packed and a friends house to go to. Might be driving the Camaro there.
