This seems a bit of hyperventilating by cbs...I say this as I sit in the middle of a smoke fog east of Portland 60 miles
I am in N Nevada-—a very long way from Portland & Medford. We have been smoked over here for 26 days, with SOME clearing on past Tues.Wed due to low pressure that put snow into Denver.
When I say smoked over-—I mean that sometimes, I didn’t have 1/2 mile of visibility.
High desert can burn, but we don’t have the forests.
