Second week in May I stayed home late one morning waiting for a contractor starting repairs on my house. It was smoky enough that morning here so that you could see just across the field behind the house. We're maybe an hour away from the fire area.
Haven't had much trouble here or at work because most of the time the wind is seldom just right for it to blow toward us. But several days you can smell it, particularly in the morning, and some mornings it's actually smoky looking like fog. As the day heats up, evidently the smoke rises more and we have less here because it always lessens as the day goes along.
Counties in the area have been under orange, red, and even purple advisory conditions for air quality.
