Reno still has a smoke problem, if a little less (very little) than the days before. We wake up, then hack and cough for a while. I have a stuffed up nose and can still smell the smoke. Visibility is still less than a mile here.
I don't think that the Loyalton fire is the only source of smoke here. The wind direction is basically Northeast and many of the California fires are contributing. We have a few fires here in Nevada also, but they are north and east of me so we don't see their smoke.
Driving through hell: Motorists desperately try to escape California wildfires that have killed six with two of the blazes now in state's top ten biggest EVER as Gov. Newsom pleads with Australia and Canada to send help
Lots of pictures, bad conditions. Smoke is traveling to multiple states, not just those adjacent to Cali.
I noted a comment about the lack of half-mile fire breaks... Newsom ignored this, even after the fires of earlier years. Home owners ignored this and lost their homes... This is a strong hint to Preppers who who a Bug-Out property...
History has proven that the forest fires of California would burn constantly for 100's of years for all of time before we came and settled the land. I'm guessing that nature has a way of moving on from the disease of humanity just like any other plague or infestation.
