Some air quality visual graphics for you

The threat of our house being burned has been reduced that is unless the wind shifts.  The promise of rain today now won’t happen until Thursday.

Chris found some graphics on how bad the air is in my area.

This first graphic shows how far spread the smoke is.   It goes out over the pacific and we are getting smoke here in Idaho Falls, Idaho 725 miles to the east.  The air quality here in Idaho is bad.  So I’m being stuck inside here as well.

Where the purple is on the map just south of Portland is where my house is and where I live.  They have closed most businesses and are telling people do not go outside because the air quality is so bad.

If you follow the darkest red down find the 695 air quality … that is where I live.  Normal air quality is like 50 or below.  Bad air quality is between 100-150.  [NOTE:  here in Idaho we are about 165.] Dangerous air is anything above.  Just to give you an idea.

Freddie, our cat is doing well and so is Digi.  Maddie, the baby black pug, we’ve sedated her.  She is so exhausted and she is now sleeping peacefully.

I’ve taken a couple of photos here with my camera, but I have no way of downloading them to my computer.

  1. I am glad you are safe and hopefully your home will survive. I am monitoring the Dolan Fire in California where my relatives own inherited property. There too the property is near enough to fire but at the moment looks like it won’t get that far.

  2. Thanks for the update. Cannot believe how bad the smoke is even where you are now. That map is just one big alert on how bad the forest management program is on the west coast.


  3. Glad to read Chris and You are safe in Idaho Falls. Prayers that the weather will cooperate and aid in extinguishing this horrible wildfire 🙏

  4. Happy to hear you’re all safe, Cee. We got smokey skies here in AZ a couple days last week, but nothing eerie looking. I think the rain MUST be on its way because so many of us are hoping and praying for it! 🌞


  5. We could smell smoke quite plainly here in the Phoenix area last night. I can hardly imagine how terrible it must be up and down the coast. Glad to read that your house is likely safe.



  6. Thank you for the update! Blessings, and hopefully our air quality lifts soon. We can see our buildings a tad better than yesterday! Prayers for you, and your family! 💜


  7. I have been noting our air quality every morning here in San Francisco. When I saw one on your map that said 518, I was horrified. Ours is bad at 300.


  8. Oh my! this is distresssing to see graphic representation of how bad it is but thank you for sharing this. Stay safe and you and your home are on my prayer wheel every night.


  9. You’ve been on my mind. I also have family in Oregon, Washington and California. We had smoke over Southern AZ, but this afternoon the sky was almost clear. I appreciate the updates and continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. 🙏🏻🤗💔


  10. The rain is welcome but when it comes down it will be full of ash. Took me months to get it off everything, my advice is don’t wait too long or it’s a bitch to shift.


  11. Every year the fires are getting worse, and the smoke spreading further and further – wish there was an easy solution to preventing them starting in first place but . . . . . . . . .
