My neighbors had their nightly wood fire in their outdoor fire pit last night. I don’t know how they could stand to be outside. They have big fans that blow the fire pit smoke away from their house. It blows right into my bedroom window. Lucky me.

Exactly where are stations used to measure located?
This afternoon is an on shore air flow and forecast model shows an even stronger onshore push for Friday.

Pittsburg looks pretty clear. Nowhere near how it was and smelled yesterday.
