South winds have filled the Willamette Valley with California wildfire smoke. So much for smoke-free Eugene Olympic Track and Field Trials. They got it, and it was not from field burning. In fact, just a little swathing going on at this point, no combine work, let alone straw removal and then field burning. Gee. A non-issue from farmers, but the wildfire and WFU smoke is here in spades.
