We're Right in the Smoke Plume

I'm thinking visibility of four miles. Not good for the lungs.

I'm just puzzled why the smoke is here. Winds are from the south, from the wrong direction.

Interesting photo from The Atlantic. Caption reads: "A DC-10 air tanker drops fire retardant along the crest of a hill to protect the two bulldozers below that were cutting fire lines at the River Fire (Mendocino Complex) near Lakeport, California, on August 2, 2018."

That Ranch Fire is making a big break east. Like trying to stop a freight train.
