Earlier in the week, many parts of WI had smoke from that wildfire in Minnesota near the Boundary Waters. Yes, actual visible smoke plus the strong smell of smoke, including ash falling was as far south as Milwaukee. We thought there was a nearby far, who knew it was 300 miles away.
Have there been problems in the UP? I guess the fires been going for a while, but this Tuesday the conditions were right for it to hit Wisconsin. That created some very funny jokes regarding wind blowing and sucking and Minnesota, Chicago and Green Bay football teams. I'll let you write your own joke, but the Vikings and Bears were the butt of the jokes.
