Whelp, we who are going to Oregon are not out of the woods completely:
The bad news: That fire is only 80km southwest of Madras, is completely uncontained, and only just
received FEMA funding to begin controlling it.
The good news is the smoke is only thick very close to it, and winds are mostly blowing that smoke to the southeast. The pattern seems to be that the winds blow it southward during the day, then they die out or shift north at just a couple m/s overnight, then shift south again in the morning. I think it will be ok at Madras, but we'll want to keep an eye on it. Perhaps the best resource is the Canadian smoke model here:https://weather.gc.ca/firework/firework_anim_e.html?type=tc&utc=00To all the rest who are going, I wish you the best of luck getting to totality and finding a good view! Sorry to those who couldn't make it for this one.
