UPDATED AUGUST 26, 2015:
Here is a link to a Washington State University website showing a graphic, animated forecast of smoke conditions in Oregon and Washington. Many thanks to Cliff Mass at UW for the tip. The smoke page is now added to our blogroll of links.

The heavy smoke settling over much of the area is coming from fires in Washington.
There is no cause for concern in Mosier at this time, other than the air quality issue. Exposure to this level of smoke can be an irritant, and some people may risk breathing difficulties. Residents are advised to avoid exposure if possible.
Looking at the forecast, we may experience this level of smoke or greater over the next few days.
