Strong Winds and California Smoke

The winds REALLY picked up this morning.  As I type we are having consistent gusts over 40 mph.  Highest so far is 43.  At the same time, our air quality is deteriorating.  This strong southerly flow is actually carrying smoke from California into Oregon and Washington.  Right now the air quality in the Cascade foothills is "Unhealthy For Sensitive Groups".  What a paradox....  Last summer we wanted the wind to get rid of the smoke and now the wind is bringing the smoke to us.  This really speaks to how bad it is in California.  Thoughts and prayers to them....
