  1. Around 3 PM on Tues Sept 12, 2017 quite a bit of smoke came into our area Hwy 97 and Paulina Rd and became quite heavy throughout the evening. Is there a new fire or is this from an existing fire? We did not go outside but could still smell the smoke and it caused eye burning and a sore throat. Used a smoke mask we recently purchased which helped some. What is the outlook for this area for Wed. Sept 13 as we need to travel to Bend via our only means of transportation, a motorcycle.

    1. Hi there, I needed to check on the new fires question. Haven't heard od any but the shifting winds may be pushing more smoke your way. Here's the forecast for Central Oregon: http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/2017/09/smoke-forecast-for-central-oregon-sept.html
