KEUG has had intervals where the METARs have reported visibility of 0.00 SM in the last couple of days.

We've had that here at KSMF and KMHR as well. I wouldn't be surprised if KMFR is completely shut down.

However, I'm surprised they are more worried about the smoke and visibility than the ash that could get into the engines. No, it isn't volcanic ash, but it could still be just as damaging.
