  1. New start 10 miles NW of Boulder, Colorado. The Cal-wood fire is growing rapidly. Per Rmacc twitter they sent an Air attack and 5 VLATs. Structures threatened and Jamestown being evacuated.

    1. Thank you for your expertise on the fires.

      Here in Reno the smoke watch is crucial due to prevailing Westerly flows and extended toxicity levels in our basin.

      As you are aware the Reno/Tahoe Basin usually gets a majority of smoke.

      Dare I say I am a transplanted Californian and born in Los Angels.

      My father worked for Departmrnt of Forestry in CA, in Washington at noth Capitols.

      He as well worked for Navy in top secret Submarine ideas and other things he could never discuss.

      I will pass on your site to my sister who lives with me and me are very susceptible to the smoke and check often with local regional news which to say the least leave much to be desired.

      All 4 siblings very inclined to follow weather, tides, fires, volcanic action and share information across the Western United States.

      When I have the time I will share your site with others like minded.

      It is critical as I was exposed to 6 chemicals of pesticide/Insecticide origin and have contracted Multiple Chemical Sensativity along with rare genetic blood disorder along with my siblings and our rare blood.

      I have to wear masks out N 95 in normal times as well as fire.

      Lately, I am getting I’ll just leaving home due to massive amounts funneling in.

      Brother in Washington State will most likely subscribe.

      I have a friend in Snow Flake Arizona I will give her your site as they are a community of Chemicaly Sensative people who need to prepare such as I do and sock in food before it hits as we can hardly travel as is

      So my mission is to make people aware of smoke and traveling toxins as well.

      I am allowed to speak with the State of NV 911 responders from my jammies in my bed room and go to our local fire stations and share my story on being careful of toxins as they can get what I have.

      You can look me up at Washoe Counry Linda Ann Lowman vs Colvin as I sued the Washington SSDI regarding cover up of my immediate chemical sensitivity due to indoor spraying of 6 major chems dripping down the walls about 1 to 2 inches apart ceiling to floor.
      .enough about me.

      Thank you for your digital efforts in helping our challenged population.

      Linda Lowman oh, I abandoned this email address at yahoo due to advertising excessively drove me out. I am at
