I thought I could taste the smoke today. It's bad.

Here's a screen grab of video from the Mariners-Athletics baseball game.

And Eastern Washington is supposed to be worse then western Washington.

An interesting article in the Seattle Times about how the smoke is throwing off the atmospheric behavior models used by meteorologists - resulting in heavier smoke levels than predicted.

In a nutshell, one of the primary factors that causes mixing of air is the heating of air that occurs at the ground surface due to solar radiation. Like a cloud cover, the smoke cuts down on the amount of solar radiation reaching the ground surface. But unlike a cloud cover, the smoke does trap heat radiated by the ground - that is the element that hasn't been captured in the models.

So with less radiation reaching the ground surface, and no trapping of the heating that does occur, the ground level temps are cooler than predicted. And since cold air is heavier than warm air, the smoke is trapped at the ground surface.

I got olfactory deadening on the smoke five or six days ago. Weekend before last, before it got bad, I could smell it all the time. Now no smoke odor sensation at all. Just seems like normal air to my nose.

BTW - it's only smoke that I don't smell. All other sense of smell and taste is normal.

So you are getting use to it in a way. Same here but I don't like it one bit.

Getting back to better times in the west - anyone want to guess the general area for this?

Didn't see this reply until now. You're too far north. Note the crops in the fields.
