We can see the smoke this far from the source because of the size of the fires and the air flow in the atmosphere! The dominant air flow (or jet stream) changes often but sometimes can stay in one pattern for an extended amount of time.

Don’t Forget, Your Trees Need Water as Badly as Your Flowers and Plants
Summer in Northern Michigan has started very hot and very dry. If you planted new trees this spring or last fall, don’t forget to keep them watered. The DNR says dry weather can weaken healthy trees and make them more vulnerable to disease, insects and limb breakage. New trees still setting their roots especially need water. Here’s the best practice for watering your trees: Prioritize newly-planted or high-value trees. Water new trees weekly and established trees every two to three weeks. You’ll want to make sure the soil is soaked about 10 to 12 inches deep. The trick is to keep your trees healthy, but avoid overwatering them.
