No- its smoke from the terrible fires on the west coast!
Don't worry! All the trees will be gone soon! No more fires!
8:50 September 15 2020....
For the first time in 27 days
I can see a faint outline of the far ridge
Just a gray cardboard cutout...
But ya can tell its there...
27 days of 100 yards...
The good part, it's not fire...
It has been really hazy here in the valley....the sun was able to get thru yesterday and so far today....We live very close to the mountains and with the haze, you can barely make out the outline of the White Tanks....sad...
Some pretty bad reports coming through our BBC news about the CA fires and hope all you guys are safe, had a quick look on the web and wondered whether the Chinese fires of 1987, obviously not as populated as the US fires but some astounding figures all the same.
1987 – The Black Dragon Fire burnt a total of 18 million acres (73,000 km2; 28,000 sq mi) of forest along the Amur river, with 3 million acres (12,000 km2; 4,700 sq mi) destroyed on the Chinese side.
That's really not surprising. I, like most people, I think, was aware of the Great Dustbowl, the basic outlines of the history, over tilling, the migration, etc., but until I saw Ken Burns' documentary on it, I really didn't comprehend the immensity of the ecological devastation.
When I heard that the dust blocked out the sun at noon in NYC, and that inches of dust settled on the decks of ships which were miles off the east coast in the Atlantic, I gained a new appreciation of the significance of that event.

One of the things that contributed to my decision to turn my back on the Bay Area was a series of maps, something like this, showing the destruction of the Bay's wetlands and consequent degradation of the ecosystem.
I live in Eugene Oregon.... fire central. It’s sucking!
Stay safe. And be ready to go if you have to. It ain't nothin' to mess with
No haze here just clouds from freekin' hurricane Sally moving in.....
It’s been hazy here in Pa. for the last couple of days too. I’m not sure why but it looks strange. Kinda creepy
Yes it does. The sun shines thru weakly and the sky is white.
It was a dull day in CT indeed
Still smokey in Seattle. I cannot imagine what those in the line of fire are facing.
Estacada here, sucking pretty bad indeed
The smoke has hit us in Ottawa. Canada!
There hasn't been a (real) cloud in the sky here in days. but, we haven't seen the sun all week. Going outside and breathing burns the eyes and throat.
