News for September 15

As I’m writing this, my neighborhood AQI is down to 264, which is still “Very Unhealthy” but a strong improvement from the weekend. Firefighting efforts in our area are going well but Riverside is still uncontained (click the link, there’s a good explanation of what that means.) There’s rain at the coast – unfortunately Portland weather is going to stay in the murk at least a couple more days.
