My club's annual best-ball tournament was postponed due to poor air quality. C'mon rain/wind!

The weather and the crews fighting these monsters were able to control the fire perimeter and the evacuation zones have been reduced. The air quality is still absolute shit (worst in the world) because the fires are still raging, but at least we won't have to evacuate.

Update: the weather is still kicking ass! Lots of moisture/fog/rain moving through. At the peak of this there were 36 active fires in Oregon, now there are 10, all between 25 and 89% contained. The smoke is gone, air quality is way down around 10 (peak was 440 in my town).

Bonus: it will not be raining on Sunday for my tournament!
