We’re about 6 miles from our home taking these pictures. All highways are shut down around us. My mother was supposed to go back to the Spokane Airport on Wednesday but it looks like she’ll be staying with us for a while: http://www.wsdot.com/traffic/trafficalerts/
Good firemap information here: http://gacc.nifc.gov/nwcc/information/firemap.aspx Sometimes the map doesn’t load.
Here’s a picture of the smoke rising up from the fire many miles away South of Tonasket. We are up several hundred feet from Tonasket and surrounded by mountainous hills so to see this even from our home is quite significant. I will take a drive and take additional pictures to add to this later. Last night the view portrayed an eerie color of orange. We felt so bad for the people down South as we heard the winds pick up. : (
Smoke from our backyard view. This was a couple of days ago… It was worst yesterday.
