So this is where all the smoke's coming from. I'm in Livingston, MT
(Downwind). Not quite as smoky, but gusty winds and 5-8% humidity has us in red flag fire alert conditions. Keep cool.

She was on her second year with the US Forest
Service. By all reports she was an outstanding
member of her crew...condolences to her family and Crew.

We live about 2and a half hours from McCall Idaho, neat place but it's a Smoke Jumper base
and a worthy place to visit. And if you ever get by Missoula Montana stop by the National headquarters of the Smoke Jumpers, excellent tour...

Bob I feel your pain… this is miserable, dangerous, and so uncomfortable.

Just got word from my son, his firefighter crew flew out last friday and is stationed down there bivouacked at a local school. Bussing out to a fire, 16 hour daily shifts.

You definitely need a change in weather.

Thankfully, the closest fire is 50+/- miles
south. Smoke drifts into the Rogue Valley,
but nothing like this.

Thanks for sharing.
