And again, Mama Nature comes in and resolves the situation. It is amazing the a cyclone 1000 miles away would have any effect on the Left Coast smoke but it did … kudos and thanks, Mama Nature.

Smoke from historic West Coast wildfires is so vast and thick that it traveled more than 1,000 miles into the swirl of a Pacific storm. NOAA/NASA’s Suomi NPP satellite captured images of smoke that had traveled 1,300 miles by Sep. 10.

Typically smoke wafts towards the East, wrote meterologist Scott Sistek, but instead “the smoke was carried west out to sea.” There the smoke was pulled out even further by a low pressure system that swirled the smoke into its center.
