The smoke from the wildfires has returned – with a vengeance. I went out for a short walk around sunset last night and there was ash falling out of the sky. The sun was setting and there was a band at the base of the smoke where the sun was a big red ball. You can sort of see it between the trees in the first photo. In the second photo, the sun is blown out, but in actuality, it was a big red ball. I only had my phone with me so this was the best I could do. I sure hope the smoke dissipates soon – it’s hard to breath outdoors.
We have a lot of wild fires in the region which has resulted in a lot of smoke in our skies. This was from a walk in the evening last night once it cooled down enough to get out and walk. The smoke has obliterated the view of the mountains. The excessive heat and dry conditions are not helping the fire situation.
