Yes, that’s right. Last evening on the CBS Evening News, there was a story on the Pacific Northwest, specifically Washington,Oregon, regarding the air quality. The smoke from fires in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California has settled in the two states and we officially have the worst air quality in the western hemisphere.
This picture was taken a few minutes ago. Normally we can see all the way down the valley and across the hills to the Cascade Mountains. What we see now, and have been seeing for over three weeks, is smoke. Gah!
The picture doesn’t even give you a very good idea, you have to see it in person, which, of course, you don’t want to do!
